Art Director & Designer
YUNOJUNO SWEET FA FREELANCE AWARDS 2017
WINNER CREATIVE (ART)
Hello. I’m a concept-driven, hybrid Art Director & Designer based in London. I have a bunch of experience both above and below the line. I’ve worked on the lot, from apps, games & graphic novels, to knitted socks, ice-cream vans & bespoke teapots. I also make lovely cup of tea.
I work either alone or in a Creative Team with Copywriter Matt Taylor and am available to work on or off-site anywhere in the UK, Europe and the USA, (Green Card holder).
I'm proud to have won the Yuno Juno Freelancer Award 2017 for the Creative (Arts) category as voted by my clients.

I can always rely on Karl to give a fresh perspective and creative outlook to any campaign; be it from a design element, or in achieving a set business objective. His work is always of a high professional standard and his ability to understand and meet a client's need in terms of brand, tone and requirements make him an invaluable resource to any marketing team. I would highly recommend Karl's skills to anyone looking for a reliable and honest person to challenge what they believe is possible with any creative campaign.

It doesn't get any better than Karl. He created a kick-ass brand for us which is thriving in our industry. From concept to polished product, Karl was always on hand to get really stuck in. He brought a wealth of experience to our small team and executed on every point plus more! Seriously I can't recommend him enough.

I had the pleasure of working with Karl at Lavish Creative. He is a fantastic Designer/Creative Director, creative mind. Full of ideas and the skills needed to deliver them. Whilst working together it was evident Karl had the calmness and diligence to deal with tricky briefs and exceptional people skills to come to excellent creative solutions. I would not hesitate to recommend Karl as a creative. He is one of the best Creative Directors I have worked with. I hope to work with him again in the future.

Creative Works at ITV have used Lavish for inspiration, creative design and production on a number of projects over the last few years. It's alway a pleasure to work with Karl as he's a very personable, approachable guy with great ideas and a 'can do' attitude, despite the number of last minute projects we have continually thrown at him! We've challenged Lavish to work across a number of different projects with varying budgets and time restraints and have always been impressed with the creativity and quality of the work produced.
