What’s this book?

It’s to celebrate the fact that I decided to leave the mundane and the same-old, in order to start again. To look for the work that I will be proud to be doing, the kind of work which will be seen because I want people to see it.

Ten years and not enough to shout about in terms of work worth shouting about is all wrong, but nonetheless here are some bits worth seeing, the bits that managed to get past design experts in the marketing departments.

‘Severn celebrates 10 years of design work “worth shouting about” with a beautiful book’

Katy Cowan, founder of Creative Boom

‘…it is turning negatives into positives to help launch a new, more creative studio’

People of Print June 2018

‘I thought the book was great and I’m always surprised people don’t self-publish more. I get all the arguments about the world is not about “print” anymore but a book gives a designer such a solid base!

…Just keep doing the great work…It’s a very personal experience you’ve captured’

Domenic Lippa, Pentagram

To do something different. Something that I will happily say, ‘I did that’.
