I am a designer based in Sowerby Bridge in the beautiful Calder Valley with over 30 years experience in print and electronic media. An apprentice-trained compositor with 23 years experience in the graphics side of the printing industry, I have worked professionally as a website designer and developer and was also employed for ten years as a Senior Editor with a leading legal publisher.
As a designer I have chiefly worked with clients in the arts and voluntary sectors, developing branding, promotional material, diagrams for tender documents and learning/delivery aids for seminars, coaching and facilitation.
Outside of my work I am very active in community projects. I volunteer at, and am a director of, the Ganden Buddhist Centre and World Peace Cafe in Halifax, West Yorkshire and am closely involved with the Fire & Water project – which aims to convert disused buildings into a community arts centre – and the Winterlight festival, both in Sowerby Bridge.
“I’ve been working regularly with Kev for the past couple of years. The work has always been evolving and over time we have created a way to work together that works really well. Kev effectively turns what is in my head into creative solutions on the page; not an easy thing to do working in the coaching/facilitation field as the design is often about articulating thoughts, concepts and emotional intelligence.
He does this with great effect through a process of deep listening, rigorous questioning, honed design skills, a sophisticated sense of the aesthetic and by providing solutions which we then re-work and re-work until the right solution emerges. He is patient to a fault and really gets me and what I am looking for. I can’t recommend him enough.”
