Hello, I’m Jacob, a multiple award winning designer from the North-East, who recently graduated from university with a First Class. Over the years I have used my talent to tackle and raise awareness for various mental illnesses such as ADHD, Anxiety and Depression. I did a talk with Creative Conscience and the Design Museum at UAL to discuss how using creativity can help reduce the stigmas surrounding those topics. I wrote a book based on my own opinions of the world called Second Thoughts and it didn’t suck. I did all this through somehow combining my passion for graphic design and branding with trying to better myself and the others around me.

Between 2014 and 2019, I have worked with various individuals and brands such as Streamer Market, Tyler Donovan and SunnySideLabs to shape their identity to help them operate on a local and global scale. I’ve also done a few work placements in places like SailCreative and a few other studios in Newcastle.
