It takes a logical brain to be a creative


You might be surprised to learn that creativity and design take great logic. Clients often think design is colour and shape, but more often than not, it is space, geometry and aesthetics. It takes a logical brain to organise and translate information into graphic form and ensure it is straightforward, easy on the eye and delivers the objective.

Mark, one of our fantastic designers, has a very logical brain and puts this to good use daily. With over twenty years of design experience, his creativity is fostered through detail, clarity and commonsensical design, and he has produced some outstanding work for clients.

Some interesting facts about Mark are that he loves dance music, running, and skateboarding and started his career as a game tester! How cool is that?
