    Multiple design projects from the past decade, covering all areas of entertainment.
Grange Hill The Classic Years - boxset exclusive for HMV, 2007. There was no style guide, and as the property was from the 1970s the photography was limited. The DVD team chose to focus the marketing on the character "Tucker Jenkins" played by Todd Carty, as he was central to the first 4 years of the series. The background was a high res scan from the original film of the title sequence, giving us the iconic "Grange Hill canteen sausage" that fans of the show remember from the title sequence.
Cover image option created for Endemol Music's "Urban Reality" library music compilation. The brief was left open for me to interpret, aside from a proviso that no guns or "gangstas" should appear on the image. The music provided reminded me of early 90's hip hop so I designed the cover in a fun, colourful way with a little psychadaelia thrown in.
Chris Devotion and The Expectations. Album cover 2011. There was no brief save for the title, and the songs as recorded. After a few false starts, I realised that a dried rose on my kitchen windowsill could make a great cover image, and give the design a similar feel to that of New Order's "Power, Corruption and Lies" cover.

The Elvis Suicide. Cover for album "Sweethearts"
Inner art for "Sweethearts", bringing out the album's more reflective, lovelorn side.

Cover for the first EP from March 2008. Contains images by flickr users: Paul Mison, Nicole Espinola and Steve Cadman
"Doctor Who - The Infinte Quest". 2007.
Doctor Who spin-off "The Sarah Jane Adventures" series began with a one-off episode "Invasion of the Bane". The tentacles for the cover were rendered and provided by The Mill. We made a concious decision to use a similar layout to the Doctor Who DVD releases as the two shows were so strongly linked.
The first DVD release for Charlie and Lola
Charlie and Lola Complete Series ONE box set.
Charlie and Lola Complete Series ONE in collectors tin. Our original pitch was a picnic scene on the outside, but through discussion with the creative leads on the brand, we arrived at a "tin suitcase" that could be used for art supplies.
Poses were rendered to our specification.
LazyTown, first UK release. The brand has a precise style guide covering all eventualities, however we had our own house layout style at BBC Childrens DVD so the final layout was about finding a happy medium whilst creating an impactful cover.
Ten years of Teletubbies on DVD, 2007. The cover was printed on gold foil stock.
Director John Gorman asked me to design his showreel packaging, using imagery from his productions. The distressing on the edges was a high res scan of an old photograph in my collection. The holding shape for his title was a scan of masking tape, inverted and overlaid on top of the text.
