This is me…

Hi, I’m Steve. Born and raised in Sunderland and now living in County Durham with my two labradors and my girlfriend of ten years. Other than the aforementioned loves of my life, I love music, cinema, food (Specifically pizza. Making and eating), computer games, interior design and football (Playing and begrudgingly following Sunderland AFC). 

This is what I do…

Currently, I work as a Design Manager at hedgehog lab in Newcastle Upon Tyne (

I’m a versatile, experienced designer, with a background in UX & UI design, branding and illustration.

I’m a multi disciplined, creative problem solver with over 14 years industry experience working from agencies to start-ups as well as previously running my own company. I’ve worked with a variety of clients from start-ups to named brands such as:

  • Deliveroo
  • BNF – British National Formulary
  • ITV
  • The Football Supporters Federation
  • Go Ahead Group
  • Rust-oleum
  • Newcastle University
  • Newcastle United Football Club
  • Jaguar Land Rover
  • Tommee Tippee
  • AkzoNobel
  • NHS
