“I started Harrison Brands in 2021, after years of working in agencies with unnecessary layers and lacking a strong purpose. Now, it’s time for both People and Planet to come before Profit”.
Previous (and existing) clients include:
Barclays Bank, Combat Stress, Marks & Spencer, Berkeley Group, Baird Capital, Redrow, Chapman BDSP, Sutton and East Surrey Water, Mount Anvil, AgeUK, Red Funnel, UST Global.
I have over 25 years experience of working with the likes of Interbrand, Ziggurat Brands and others to create brand identities, train liveries, books, brochures, signage, hoardings, in fact, most forms of brand communication.
At the young age of 14, I decided that I couldn’t be responsible for the needless slaughter of animals for my own diet, so I became vegetarian. At 17, I stood for election as the Green Party candidate in the school mock elections.
And then I focused on profit first. Working up to a Creative Director position and staying there for many years.
Along came the change. Starting Harrison Brands led me to establish my own purpose. Stunned by the damage we were doing to our planet and outraged that we still live in a world where there is discrimination and worse.
Harrison Brands exists today to tackle these issues by enabling brands to communicate their impact both on the planet and people with great effectiveness.
In 1991, I cycled to Brighton wearing one of the most outlandish cycling kits ever produced. Many years later, keen to keep my carbon footprint to a minimum, you’ll still find my on a road bike, but more suitably attired for today.

My approach to design is deeply influenced by Minimalism, a design philosophy that emphasises quality, durability, functionality, and timelessness. This philosophy forms the foundation of my work, guiding my efforts to create designs/concepts that are not only aesthetically clean and clear but also durable and enduring.
In September 2023, I made the move to London from New Zealand with the goal to advance my creative career. In my hunt for a new position here, it was important to me that the role I landed, seamlessly aligned with my social and environmental values. Harrison Brands’ values stood out to me so I jumped at the opportunity to join this forward thinking team. I’m very excited to take on my new role, and continue developing as a creative.
