Work Experience

PECI Communication Design

Founder, Creative Director

PECI Communication Design is my latest venture. I have taken my 25+ years experience as a graphic designer, art director, communications, marketing and branding expert, information architect, editorial and web designer, etc., and packed it all into one efficient and professional creative powerhouse: MYSELF!

Back to basics is my philosophy. With the current saturation of available information and ever-growing messages, sometimes the best way to be seen and "shout" is to whisper. So whilst the quantity of communication has changed, the quality doesn't have to.

PECI Communication and Design: putting form to your ideas.
