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

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

I am a British creative based in San Francisco fueled by a lifelong love for creativity, skateboarding and music.

In the mid 80's I discovered skateboarding and never looked back. Skateboard magazines and videos introduced me to a fountain of endless creativity and music which deeply resonated.

In 1996 I started out designing flyers for club nights in Southampton and London, UK. A year or so later I had the opportunity to design record sleeves and mixtape covers for a small hip hop record label out in Miami. In 1998, I moved to Bristol and contributed design work to 50:50 Skate Store and continued to design more flyers for club nights and bars.

In 2000, I had the opportunity to move to London to take on the role of Head Designer for a fast moving music company where I gained valuable experience working on a wide range of print and web projects. I still enjoyed freelancing outside of work hours at this time, producing graphic design work for local businesses and music artists. After years of dedication, short deadlines and many, many late nights, I decided to scratch a long time itch by Science Skateboards, a skateboard brand which focused on supporting creativity and collaboration.

I ran the company singlehandedly, producing the majority of the companies content with a team of skaters between the years of 2006 and 2020. Relevant creative roles included graphic design, illustration, skate photography, video, web design and development.

I had the privilege of collaborating with both established and up-and-coming creatives on skateboard graphics and various creative projects during this period.

Overall, I'm very grateful for the opportunities to pursue my passions and to have worked with so many talented individuals over the years. Nowadays, I continue to push myself creatively and continue to strive for honest authenticity.

Feel free to reach out. I'd be happy to discuss any ideas you may have and explore the potential for working together.
