Hi, I'm Dan – a Melbourne-based Designer, Digital Producer and Creative Project Manager.

With a passion for guiding talented teams to deliver innovative design and branding solutions, work with me to create standout brand identity systems, websites, and digital artwork.

I also run Space on Earth, Vaulter, perform and teach improvisation, and record A bit Spursy, a weekly football podcast.

Design Approach

Bringing two decades of experience in the design industry, my work emphasises a human-centred and collaborative approach. I actively work together with clients to create products that represent their core values, help them grow, whilst also genuinely providing value for their users.

My journey has spanned directorial roles in agencies and freelancing, partnering with a diverse range of clients across various sectors.
