“If my 15 year old self knew who I would have worked with over the next 40 years, I would never have believed it. To be honest I still don’t.”Ned

Born in London, I started my first business at 14 and then got my first fully professional gig at 15 designing covers for a UK national magazine and have been designing ever since. So far over 4000 book covers and nearly 200 entire books and designed as 2hDesign and working on brand designs since 2007 as co-founder of The Big Ideas Collective with Jacky.

I met Todd when we were both speaking at the Goldman Sachs 10k small business programme. I have been a key speaker at UK literary festivals, also York St John University Business School. In 2016 ran a creativity workshop at the TEDxAlmendraMedieval and will be running a new workshop at TEDxVitoriaGastiez in April 2017 and assisted Todd in 2018..

Privileged to live with my soul mate and mosaic artist Alison; proud to be Dad to Katy who is carving her own way into the world of theatre design at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London.

Other stuff I love: live music, cooking, theatre, travel and walking my dog Pip.
