Hello, thanks for stopping by.
I'm Denise, and I've been working as a designer for over 15 years.
I'm currently a Creative Director at BERG London, and for the four years prior to that, I was the Creative Director for the award winning start up moo.com, creating and defining the brand through digital and physical products.
This site used to be a portfolio of freelance client work—and you can see some of the clients that I've worked for listed to the right. In recent years the type of work I do has varied enormously; from defining the MOO brand in a visual and written form, to developing relationships between companies and online communities. The portfolio which has sat here rather unloved for several years didn't really represent that, and so it's moved on.
If you'd like to know what I get up to on a day to day basis, please head over to BERG London. And if there's something you think I can help you with, feel free to get in touch.

Publications: b3ta.com and CityCreator have appeared in: Computer Active, Contract Journal, Private Eye, Graphics International, The Guardian, The Independent, The Sun, The Mirror, USA Today and a few more I've lost track of.
B3ta is an online creative community. Launched in 2002, it was co-founded by myself, Cal Henderson and Rob Manuel. B3ta has a weekly newsletter (subscribers numbering over 100,000) and an active messageboard. It's not for the faint-hearted.
Over the years I've done quite a few illustrations, mostly for magazines and books. Sometimes I also draw for fun. I've collected some of my work together—and will hopefully add more to it in the future. You can see the collection here.
While I don't have a personal or professional blog, I do write about—and collect interesting links to—design in all its forms over on Tumblr. Occasionally it wavers off topic a bit, but maybe that's the joy of a scrapbook?
