Over several years I’ve worked on numerous menswear trend forecasts and several different magazine series covers for the specialist Dutch publishing house, Metropiltan, mostly in collaboration with the Colourist & Stylist, Emcee Viannay. These works represent a small sample of our creative output, much of which has been been printed and published internationally.
The primary aim of the shoots, targeted specifically at the fashion manufacturing and design industries, was always about conveying a distinct but focused and inspirational message of what is currently on-trend, in a format that is both accessible and repackageable to consumers, regardless of the sphere of industry in which they operate.
Imagery shot specifically for restaurant interior display and then used for digital media to promote the unique quality, character and flavour of Eco's sourdough 'Cafone', produced on-site in the bespoke wood-fired oven along with other assorted bakery produce.

Privet is a specialist beauty, grooming & non-surgical treatment salon in Notting Hill, London.
In a bid to attract more male customers we were initially asked us to conceptualise, theme and create some thought provoking, humorous seasonal imagery for their salon window and social media campaigns. It proved to be a very enjoyable process, so much so that we went on to completely revamp and re-imagine the shop’s previously uninspiring exterior with a new colour scheme, logotype, signage, planters & window imagery.
We now regularly create and contribute new visual content for Privet’s in-store & social media channels.
