"One Owl Please began life as an online store where I would sell owl badges and customers would ask "one owl, please!" (you can see them here). Since 2010, it's been the name of my graphic design and illustration studio."
On most days I work from my little cottage in the heart of the historic market town of Cockermouth. Perched right on the edge of the Lake District National Park, inspiration for my work can be found around every corner. You can also find me working from my laptop up in the beautiful city of Edinburgh, where my partner and our two fluffy kits live.
Following a long stint working in various creative agencies in Manchester, I moved away from the hubbub of the city up north to my rural paradise. With a head full of ideas and a calling to help motivated people realise their dreams, I committed to my own vision and made the decision to run my creative studio full time. When not working on projects, you can find me foraging, bothy hunting and roaming the fells around Cumbria, or exploring the hidden gems and historic secrets of Edinburgh.
How I Work
Taking a holistic approach lies at the centre of what I do, regardless of whether you’re a small or large business, charity or agency. Consistency across your design and creative work, and the representation of your organisational ‘story’ is key to your success.
Together, we’ll take a journey from where you are now to where you want to be. The first step involve me getting to know all about your business and how I can help. We can discuss your project over email, arrange a phone call, or we can meet up for coffee, tea, and maybe a slice of cake or two. Then I’ll pull it all together into a bespoke design solution that will combine my expertise with your vision and passion. I’ll guide and support you through each phase of your project until you have creative solution you can’t wait to launch.
If your project requires extra pairs of hands, I have a fantastic team of local creatives who I rely on to help me deliver larger scale projects, or services I can’t deliver myself such as photography, video, app building etc. Let me know your requirements and I can bring on board the right folks who will help us in making your creative ideas a reality.
