CD is 5

It’s now five years since I set up Collier Design and started freelancing.


Over the past year I have continued to work with Lloyds Banking Group to design new digital experiences, improving how customers interact with the bank. I have also worked on a number of smaller projects, including work for Weir+Wong and Hope & Glory.

Five years have really flown by. A big thank you to everyone who has helped make it possible.

And thanks to my 1-year-old son, Joshua for the handprint!

Strengths Profile launches

Earlier this year, I worked with Weir+Wong and their client Capp, to develop a new identity for a psychometric strengths profiling tool. 

Strengths Profile is a simple online assessment that allows individuals or teams to understand their passions and abilities and whether they are using them effectively.

The service has now launched and I will be putting together a new case study shortly.

10 years ago it all began…

As I mentioned in my last post, this summer marks ten years since I graduated from the University of Lincoln.

Perhaps the piece of work I am still most proud of and certainly the one that has attracted the most attention is Typographic Links.

And ten years ago to the day, I was busy working away, creating it. 

The board was how it all started…

Teaching at Lincoln

I was delighted to be invited back to the University of Lincoln this week to do some more teaching. 

I was asked to review responses to this year’s ISTD briefs by the 2nd year students. There was some excellent presentations and I really enjoyed giving feedback – hopefully some of it was useful!

This summer it will be 10 years since I graduated from the course… Something I can’t quite believe.
