Avast, me hearties: ye have dropped anchor in Port Folio! Now set to and plunder me projects!

Don’t be fooled by my broken fists and constant bellowing; give me a laptop and I know what I am doing. In fact, my work has been used by everyone from tiny independent organisations and boutique studios, to industry-leading global corporations.

Sadly, many of my projects fall under Non-Disclosure Agreements. These mean I’m not allowed to tell anybody I was involved, normally because the project is meant to look like it was done by somebody else.

However, here are some of the places you can find my work:
