A Little About Me

Freelance Exhibition Designer & Draughtsman

Serving bespoke exhibition build, creative & experiential agencies

I am a freelance 3d Exhibition Designer, Visualiser & CAD Draughtsman based in Frome, Somerset. I have worked in-house with numerous exhibition companies over the years from the Midlands to Bath and Bristol & have over 10 years of industry experience in this field. My main area of expertise is custom build exhibitions however I have worked on a wide variety of projects including museum fit-outs, corporate interiors & outdoor events. Some companies use me to produce detailed CAD drawings for the manufacture of a bespoke stand, more often I receive a written brief and design a fully realised concept in the form of  a creative 3d visual. If you have a project that you would like me to take a look at – then do get in touch.
