Here are a few examples of London club flyer designs from some of the long-running events like Eclectic Breaks nights at Herbal in Shoreditch and The Get Down at Bar Rumba on Shaftesbury Ave. Additionally, I've also included some posters and mixtape covers for UK music artists and Technics DMC Champions.


These were all created between 1996 and 2005, some in collaboration with Jethro Haynes, specifically for club scene illustrations like the Nextmen and DJ Plus One flyers.

I'm a British creative based in San Francisco. In 1996 I started designing flyers for club nights in Southampton, UK. In 1998, I moved to Bristol and became involved in design work for the local skateboarding and music scenes, whilst continuing to design flyers for regular London club nights.

In 2000, I had the opportunity to take on the role of Head Designer for a fast-paced music company where I gained valuable experience working on a wide range of web and print projects. After four years of dedication, I decided to launch Science Skateboards, a skateboard brand which focused on creativity.



I produced most of the content between 2006 and 2020, including photography, video, graphic design, illustration, editing, and website design. I also had the privilege of working closely with established and emerging creatives on collaborative skateboard graphics and with other photographer and filmers on various projects.
