Black and White Illustration

Creative and resourceful thinking are part of the process of creating imaginative  illustration –  the thinking time to get the ideas flowing It’s in the prep.

Illustration often offers a greater level of flexibility than stock photography. Sketch proposals can be generated quickly, then refined to get a very specific message across.

Got a question?





I often get asked to do artwork to very tight deadlines, mostly to get artwork to the printers and meet submission deadlines. You might think commissioning original illustration work on a quick turnaround might sound a little crazy, but it really depends on the brief.

With a tight deadline, preparation is everything. From the concept design to final piece, it’s easy to fall into certain traps.

I’ve been an illustrator and designer for as long as I can remember, Working with people all over the world, providing them with design ideas as unique as they are.

It’s my passion to engage people with good design across all media, whether setting up a website that can be easily updated, providing an illustration commission, animation or a cross branded design campaign with online marketing and SEO. JCU is as much about product, as it is service, providing a great design, and client experience. 

With over 20 years industry and design studio experience and a dedication to researching the latest design trends and web technology, it’s not just about creating a look and feel , but solving design problems.
Design is everywhere. With an increasing number of  screens in everyday  each one seeking attention and engagement . It’s my mission to understand the DNA of excellent design communication and pass that on in the work I create for others. I do it with efficiency and impact, and 99% of my work comes from referrals. My a portfolio has national and international clients. Ranging from music festivals and production companies to environmental awareness organisations. Will you be next?
