We had Yahoo GeoCities, hit counters, scrolling text marquees, guestbooks and some very intense backgrounds. Coincidentally, that was the year I launched my first website and designed my first logo.
Sixteen years later, I’m a hybrid designer with dual focus on digital and brand. I have worked with a diverse blend of international clients ranging from the Northern Ireland national football team to local governments, global corporations, law firms, charities and tech start-ups.
Would you rather blend into the background, or stand out from the crowd? When some people hear the term "disruptive", it can bring back memories from their past. The school teacher referring to the naughty kid in the class as being “disruptive”. That is, indeed, a form of disruption, but what we're talking about here is a little different.
Disruptive thinking is the key to how you can set your brand apart from the competition. Disruptive thinking is about being comfortable with the uncomfortable. Asking the tough questions to find the right answers. Shaking things up and challenging the way you think. That’s disruptive thinking. I’m a disruptive thinker and I enjoy working with the disruptors and the disrupted. I can help you stand out from the crowd.
My approach is strategic. I will take an unbiased look at your brand and pinpoint what makes you great (and what might be holding you back). After that, working closely with you, I can design your brand identity, define your brand strategy and create targeted communications to help you stay one step ahead of your competition.
Mark helped me develop a company name, logo and marketing materials for my start up business. His ideas were creative and original and we were on the ‘same page’ from day one. He showed considerable patience with me, especially when I changed my mind on the colour at the last minute!Tanya Sturges, Adonis Blue
I collaborated with Mark on a number of branding initiatives while at Intel. I was always amazed at how quickly Mark could transform an outline brief into a piece of professional marketing collateral.James Brennan, Intel Corporation
After carrying out some thorough research, he came up with a gem of a logo which we were incredibly pleased with – right away. After a few tweaks, which Mark was very prompt and helpful in making, we had a perfect logo.Mark Locker, Theme Park Nerd
