“Had a delightful day judging the Brand Impact Awards. Nick is a charming, smart guy with a huge knowledge and respect of the industry. He loves what he does and sees. The debates were serious and good fun in equal measure.”

Greg Quinton – chief creative officer, Superunion

On sale now: Virgin By Design

I am the author of Virgin By Design, a premium ‘coffee-table’ book charting the fascinating evolution of the Virgin brand from 1970–2020.

My brief was to capture Virgin’s brand values and tone of voice, while remaining engaging and entertaining for an external audience of designers, marketeers and entrepreneurs.
