Having worked right in the centre of Leicester for the last 15 years of my career, moving to the wild west of Wales has been a pretty big change for myself and the family!
One of the big deciders for the move is definitely the awe inspiring landscape and raw beauty of the Dyfi Valley, near Machynlleth in the southern end of Snowdonia. As a creative person I find it hugely inspiring being surrounded by nature, from the huge sweeping views to the abundance of interesting textures and organic forms – not to mention the peace and space to let your mind run free.
I find myself constantly reaching for my phone/camera to capture the details, colours, textures and sights that you find on a walk, run or ride. My mind seems to be working overtime on ideas that get sparked by this inspiring place to live.
I can't wait to get to work on new projects for clients or my own type designs that can draw on the surroundings. Here's to an exciting new phase in my creative career, and a great new place to base my business.
