I have a BA (Hons) in Graphic Design, and from 1994 to 2010 I worked for the Mail on Sunday graphics department on both the main paper and its many supplements. During this time I also wrote several novels: my Operation Red Jericho trilogy was published in over 20 countries. Since then I have been working as a graphic designer and art director for a wide variety of clients including BP/Castrol and a number of London-based clients.
I really enjoy working across a wide set of disciplines: these encompass 2D print (including branding and brochure design), 3D (CGI) illustration, artworking, image retouching and photography. I also have experience in large scale artworking for architectural projects.
Current and recent clients:
BP/Castrol / Design consultant to the Operational Excellence Division (ongoing); additional work undertaken for marketing division and other Castrol internal projects.
‘I have worked with Josh for the past 6 years in both my role as VP of Operational Excellence at Sara Lee/Douwe Egberts and now at BP/Castrol and I have no hesitation in recommending him. My work with Josh has mainly been in communicating complex business problems and solutions in a visual way, articulating what sometimes you just cannot really capture in words. Whether it’s just one incredible creative or a simple Powerpoint deck or some new branding, he can translate what you want and professionalise the whole look and feel. Works to my last minute deadlines (sorry!), sometimes with just a handwritten scribble (sorry again!), but then what he creates is both exactly what I was looking for and to an exceptionally high standard and quality. Again could not recommend him enough!’ Jackie Driscoll | BP/Castrol Global Program Director Customer Excellence & Director of Operational Excellence (Europe)
