Funny things, events and exhibitions. You spend 6 months planning for something that lasts two days. You spend weeks refining a design that people see for seconds. There’s so little time to make an impression. So getting things right is the only option.

The two key ingredients that make sure our exhibitions and events run smoothly:


We leave nothing to chance. Every detail is meticulously planned in advance.


We think on our feet.
If a curve ball flies your way, we deal with it coolly and calmly.

I make sure we live by our core values and don’t just recite them and delivering the highest possible service level on every occasion, by doing what we say we’ll do. Planning, planning and more planning are the three most vital aspects of my role – and a cool head is helpful too!

I listen carefully to clients and always try to present ideas that exceeds expectations. Whether designing a clothing unit, a hospitality marquee or a dog drinking point, I really love design and creating amazing visuals that bring a client’s vision to life.

What I value and enjoy are the challenges of working on a variety of projects. The gathering of information enables me to create exciting, fresh, memorable designs be it a large 3D exhibition stand or a 2D graphic for a display board. My aim and intention are always to engage and impress.
