hi. i’m adrian, a designer-artist with over 25 years experience in graphic design, branding and creating artworks for public spaces.
‘electric angel’ is the award-winning* design studio i set up in 2000 and is today a mechanism for collaborating with other designers, artists, web developers and creatives from many disciplines to produce work tailored to clients needs.
i’m often credited under my own name for public art and the studio name for graphic design, so you may have found me via either of these routes. either way i’m delighted you’re here and i’m pleased to show a selection of design and artworks, some of them solo projects, some collaborations and some the result of team work in the studio.
