I’m Mark Arrowsmith*, a conceptual graphic designer and art director.

My firm belief in the importance of an idea influences all my work. It can communicate a message, define an identity, establish change and build brands of any size. 

Since graduating from UCLan almost 10 years ago, I’ve worked for the likes of adidas, Häagen-Dazs, Diageo, Umbro, Selfridges, Oak Tyres and Red Tractor.

I’ve been fortunate enough to work with some of the UK’s top design studios with broad responsibilities and creative freedom, building an understanding of the importance of collaboration and design exploration.

I'm always keen to hear about interesting projects and opportunities so if you'd like to get in touch, please contact me here.
