Design, Strategy, Leadership

Pier

hi you.

I'm Gareth, an experienced Design Leader.
I work in Strategy, Design and Creative Management.

 

I'm an independent practitioner in Leadership, Design, Design Strategy and Product & Brand Development from my home in London, UK. At the moment, I'm working with tech startups to develop digital products, brands and routes to market for Healthcare, e-Learning, Property Management, Augmented Reality and Web TV.

This is based on 17 years of building and running hugely successful practices in the Caribbean, one of which I merged with Ogilvy (part of the WPP group). I've developed brands and strategy for dozens of companies - some of which were barely more than an idea; others multi-billion dollar enterprises with hundreds of employees. 

I'm a big believer in community involvement, and have done a fair bit of teaching, giving talks and mentoring. I established the region's first dedicated co-working space, and the first Design Association. 

I'm taking a lot of photographs at the moment. Other than the on-going capture of what captures me, I'm working on a project that looks at stories around design and sociological change in Trinidad and Tobago by retaking photographs my father took 30 years ago. This has been quite a surprising challenge to the accepted notion of development in emerging economies.

I love what I do, and am always excited to meet people who feel the same way. Perhaps that's you?
