Hello and welcome!

I grew up in England and moved to the Basque Country in 2005 to learn Basque, Europe's oldest language. I am a Partner and Design Director at di-da, a leading branding and publicity agency, specialising in Basque cultural campaigns and brand strategy.

My work centres around effectively representing values, vision and purpose, both visually and verbally. I believe in intelligent design.

This site features some of my design work as well as thoughts on branding and life experiences.

I love people and have a natural ability to network, communicating fluently in English, Basque or Spanish.

In 2012 I co-founded Cross Culture Surf, a non-profit association that uses the sport and culture of surfing to bring people together, embrace diversity and to promote cultural awareness.

Some of my work has featured in design publications such as:

Los Logos 7, Gestalten 2014
Brandemia - Emun brand identity case study
Relogo - redesigning the brand, Sandu   
Los Logos 6, Gestalten 2012
Los Logos 5: Compass, Gestalten 2010
Los Logos 4, Gestalten 2008

I am grateful to have shared with different audiences, in English, Basque and Spanish on a variety of subjects from branding to Basque identity.
