Pour yourself a nice cup of tea and explore.
I am Tristram Grevatt, a very practical creative who drinks lots of tea, lives in Devon, has a talent for design (apparently), likes long walks and enjoys a healthy dose of mischief. I believe that good design costs no more than bad design. I am not a perfectionist, but believe that you should always do the best you possibly can with whatever resources you have.
My working life has seen me undertake several official roles and many more unofficial ones. I am a practical creative with an engineering Master’s degree who spent nine years as the lead graphic designer for an international group of companies, during which I was as likely to have my hands down the drains as on my mouse. I loathe blowing my own trumpet (and anyway I prefer the tuba), but here are some of my more useful skills.
For many years I was involved in producing pantomimes performed by foreign language students. At various times I wrote the scripts, produced props, created backdrops, sewed dresses, arranged the music, built the stage, made the curtains, designed the posters and rigged up the lighting. Oh, and I appeared on stage a few times too…
