My Story

I’ve always had a passion for good, clean, meaningful design and having the ability to think laterally helps me drive evolve to be the best in the market.

With a varied career spanning the print, marketing and design sectors, I have worked in a strategic design and marketing capacity for over 25 years. Circa 2010 I joined forces with a former colleague of mine and we rebranded the company as evolve.

Our company is a service design agency that applies design thinking to everything that we do. This in turn helps our customers establish an emotional connection critical to their long term success, between their brands and their target markets. It’s about planning and organising people, infrastructure and your visual communication collateral in order to improve its quality and the interaction between you, as the service provider and your customers. It is also the creative way that we improve existing services and innovate new ones. In essence we are making life easier to communicate.

In the past, I have worked for companies where I’ve felt constrained or unhappy, finding it difficult to enjoy what I did. Through evolve I actually feel privileged to have a team around me who’s varying skillsets and personalities create a culture where I enjoy the challenges and opportunities that occur on a daily basis. Not only do I enjoy my work, but I also get excited about what the future holds for evolve.
