Paul Patterson

2D Designer

Since graduating from Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge with an Honours Degree in Graphic Design, I have worked my way from a Junior Mac Operator to Creative Director of my own boutique design agency. I enjoy every aspect of design, from a simple flyer to rebranding a bluechip company. Each individual job requires the same kind of thought process: “how can I best communicate my client’s message?” Every client’s brand has a different set of core values – which need to be portrayed within every piece of design – and it’s my pleasure to bring these to life. My background at top design agencies means I’ve worked with a number of big international brands, in a team of very experienced individuals.

This has given me the knowledge of how to approach any brief from a design point of view, but also how other disciplines within an agency will approach and deliver for that brief. I now operate my own small, boutique agency, offering my skills to small local businesses (and a few very large ones), with the opinion that every business, large or small, deserves an identity that looks professional and represents the values and personality of its brand.
