President & Creative Director
People are happy when they treat themselves to their favourite chocolate bar. People are full of joy when they travel, and experience interesting cultures, sights and tastes. People are happy when they sit on luxurious furniture, in a room beautifully designed, in their dream home that they’ve created.
Who doesn’t love a little happiness and joy? Simon certainly does, and particularly loves to work on projects that create those emotions for others to experience. In fact, his entire career has been built around helping brands that provide a service or product that provide happy experiences, from working with adventure travel companies; leisure and lifestyle-based shows and events; to designing chocolate bars, drink or gourmet food branding and packaging.
Refined yet sometimes rebellious, Simon has an aesthetic sensibility that is worldly, borne from years of travel and an unfailing enthusiasm to discover, be inspired by, and learn from different cultural experiences.
Simon’s entrepreneurial approach makes him an invaluable ally. He is always listening and thinking, and is able to solve problems with an often divergent approach. He is a firm believer that purpose is the innermost expression of a brand, and mining that essence to create an authentic brand positioning is the foundation from which to build a compelling brand story.
Simon was formally trained in communication design at UCA in England, and has over 20 years of senior level brand strategy and design experience. He has worked in the UK, Germany, USA and Canada.
