Every project is different and understanding your needs and project requirements is something I believe is imperative to creating the right product for you. I have acquired extensive knowledge of the footwear design & footwear development process thru years of working in the footwear industry with some of the best UK & International footwear brands and footwear factories.
I cover all aspects of the footwear design process from entry point to high end, casual, lifestyle, formal & safety product. From start up brands to international collections, I offer an end to end service.
My footwear design & development packages cover all aspects of the process from creative direction, trend research, packaging, logo design, last selection, prototyping and final sales samples. I approach research thru shop visits in the UK & Europe together with an extensive knowledge of trends and branded product.
I work on a freelance footwear design / project basis and offer a very competitive pricing structure. I can work in-house or via satellite location with your development team or chosen factory.
I have worked with Clients & factories in the UK, Europe, China, India, Vietnam, Taiwan, USA & Canada.

He is also looking at ways to reduce the high toxic impact associated within footwear production.
