What will you be doing at Union St?

I plan on making Union St my main base of operations – working on designs for clients, self-initiated projects and everything in between. While I’m at it’d be nice to meet new people and the opportunity to do a little networking is a bonus.

How did you get into this area of work?

Through lots of learning. I studied Graphic Design throughout School, College and University, and with each step upwards discovered more inspirations and more to like. These days my appreciation for both print & digital media keep me excited and enthusiastic about Design.

What do you enjoy most about your work?

There’s nothing quite like seeing something you’ve made out there in the big wide world.

What type of individuals / organisations are you looking to work with in the future?

Photographers/ Website Designers/ Illustrators and many others.

For fellow start-ups, could you offer an entry-level discount / price? If so, what would that be?

I would certainly consider it! I’m friendly and approachable so please do say hello.

What are you looking to get out of Union St?

A place to work, a place to meet and a place to eat. The odd new contact/ friendly face would be great too.

What will you be doing at Union St?

I will be doing design and structural engineering, typically large sculptures and other lightweight structures. My other current project is Homemaker, a free software tool for designing houses using Pattern Languages, though on occasions you may find me working on the Hugin panorama stitcher or Fedora Linux.

How did you get into this area of work?

I trained as an architect, but then spent many years designing large tents and doing software development, both led into my current line of work.

What do you enjoy most about your work?

Doing something different each day

What type of individuals / organisations are you looking to work with in the future?

Housing and urban reconstruction

What are you looking to get out of Union St?

I’m firstly looking for somewhere in the centre of Sheffield to work rather than working from home, I’m also well aware that it is difficult to do creative work in isolation.
