A bit about me

25 years professional creative experience, including – art direction, design, illustration, photography, high-end retouching, copywriting and artwork/production.

I would consider myself a real all rounder with solid skills across the board. Expert in Photoshop, Illustrator and Indesign.

I am equally comfortable working as part of a team or as an individual.

I have also spent the past 30 years as an enthusiastic artist. Starting in my youth with a love for traditional and urban (graffiti) art, and later developing a passion for digital art, I spent 3 years as a relatively successful artist in Dubai (well I made a living!), in a collaboration with my good friend, photographer Andy Garner, under the banner of Hutch & Garner.

I was born and bred in London, U.K., where I have spent most of my career working for some of the best brands in the world. I spent 5 years in Dubai, U.A.E., working in more of a managerial role, where I concluded that I much prefer being a hands-on creative.

I returned to London in 2010 after losing my enthusiasm for the role I had found in the Middle East’s creative industry. It really did hit home after 5 years abroad, that London is the place to be!!
