About

Steven is an independent creative working across design, photography
and art direction.

A keen collaborator, he has worked with a wide range of practitioners – from geographers to illustrators to sculptors to biologists.

His main interests lie in the convergence between visual / written communication and matters around sustainability and ecological issues.

He has always aimed to work predominently with not-for-profit organisations, community groups and academic institutions.

Clients have included the NHS, Big Issue, University of Exeter, UWE Digital Futures, Plymouth University Press and the Institute of Photography at Falmouth University.

He was awarded an Arts & Humanities Research Council︎︎ grant for a collaborative project about repair culture in the South West. The project culminated in a two-day sumposium at Reed Hall in Exeter and the publication of a book enitled Visible Mending (Uniformbooks). 

He has also worked as a lecturer in Higher Education for over ten years. After an enjoyable and lengthy stint at Plymouth University, he was offered a post on the Graphic Design BA course at Falmouth University in Cornwall, UK where he still currently works.

He lives by the sea with two great artists and an overly talkative cat.
