Mark is an illustrator and graphic designer living in the vibrant city of Leeds in England, UK. After completing his design education he specialized in magazine and editorial design for over 10 years before discovering his passion for kids illustration and surface pattern design. In 2012 he joined Hallmark's UK studio creating fun and quirky illustrations and hand drawn type exclusively for the British retailer Marks & Spencer.
"Working in the greeting card industry can be pretty fast paced at times. I love the challenge of creating new and different styles to keep my designs fresh and contemporary. It's great when I see someone pick up one of my cards in-store, knowing it can brighten someone's day!"
He also works on independent projects and his designs can be spotted in Harrods of London, Michaels in the U.S and featured on stationery products by Peter Pauper Press.
"I like to think of my work as colorful, modern and fun! I feel very lucky to do what I love for a living."
