Who I’ve worked with

Since 1997 I’ve worked closely with the likes of Sky Sports, Opta, Liverpool FC, the Premier League, the Football League and many more prestigious brands. Here’s a more detailed look at some of the work I’ve been involved in:


We Want Plates

We Want Plates is a viral campaign I created in 2015, which has attracted over 300,000 followers on social media and been published in book form. A tongue-in-cheek vehicle, it “crusades against serving food on bits of wood and roof slates, chips in mugs and drinks in jam jars.” Promotion has included the following:

  • Running the Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts
  • Building and running the official website
  • Writing the We Want Plates book, published by Prestel
  • Designing the clothing range and running the online shop
  • Editorial features in every UK national newspaper
  • Online features for the likes of Buzzfeed and Mashable
  • TV and radio including The One Show and Good Morning Britain




Knight Graphics

Knight Graphics are one of the most respected large-scale printers in West Yorkshire. They were in need of a responsive website, largely based around one scrolling front page, with client galleries featured on separate pages. I did the following:

  • Assessed the digital needs of the business with founder Rob Knight
  • Built a brand new website using WordPress: knight-graphics.co.uk
  • Provided copy, subbed existing copy and ensured SEO best practice
  • Provided training in WordPress and construction of galleries




Painting Malta

  • Building a responsive website and gallery in WordPress
  • Designing all branding including the logo
  • Generating sales and new commissions
  • Maintaining the Twitter account with new work and sales
  • Handling all email enquiries
  • Promoting forthcoming exhibitions on the island

For 12 years as part of the Orange group I worked in partnership with the likes of Sky Sports, Opta and a host of Premier League clubs including Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal to provide an unrivalled sports service for Orange users on web and mobile.
