Mind’s Eye Design – Providing Design Services For Over 20 Years
I started my career in an advertising agency just off Oxford Circus in London. I had helped to organise our graduate exhibition in a small gallery near Leicester Square, and by pure luck my future employers popped in and asked me over for an interview. I showed them my portfolio (nothing was online in those days), went for a pint and the job was mine. Strange how things work out!
Looking back on it now I was very fortunate. I’d landed my dream job as a graphic designer in central London and was working with big names such as The Daily Telegraph, Dorothy Perkins, the AA, Boosey & Hawkes and Channel 4. I loved it and learnt a great deal about working in the real world, client management, budgets and running a team.
After nearly five years I moved on and freelanced for a while before joining publishing house Hodder & Stoughton in Sevenoaks. I stayed at Hodders for many years designing upwards of 400 books ranging from physics to photography. It was fun.
The final move in my story so far was to go freelance again and then set up Mind’s Eye Design Ltd in 2002. MINDSEYE is still as exciting and challenging as always and I’ve had the pleasure of working with many wonderful people and businesses including English Heritage, The Guild Of Master Craftsmen, Ian Gillan, Gala Coffee, Alexis Dove Jewellery, The Windsor Workshop, MacMillan and many more. Long may it continue.
