Hello, I’m Simon. I’m a graphic designer by profession and I run my own business, The Ethical Graphic Design Company Ltd. in Wellington, Somerset.
I’m also a fledgling writer, amateur photographer, occasional illustrator, intermittent film-maker, wannabe musician and full time thesaurus enthusiast, all of which you can see fine examples of on this site.
My latest venture is in self-publishing. Yes, I have written a book about all of my failed projects and ideas. It may not be Hemingway but I’m very proud of it. Click here to download an excerpt.
I was once on stage with The Brotherhood of Man.
I was at a Brotherhood of Man concert for children in Birmingham with my older brother and sister when I was about 5 years old. As far as I can remember, one of the members of the band shouted to the audience, “Come on everybody!”. I took it literally and ran on stage. They plonked me next to the keyboard player with a xylophone (which they gave to me afterwards) while they sang a song, turning round and smiling at me throughout with their enormous toothy grins.
