Hello  ... Welcome to my site.
My name is Andrew Hills
I'm a creative.
What's a Creative?

Good Question

Describing myself as a CREATIVE may seem a little vague, but it isn't easy to put me in a box.

Calling me a 'designer' doesn't really describe what I do, because I do a lot more than produce graphic communication. I create user experiences and develop service designs and interfaces to support them, craft brand identities and guidelines, write copy and art direct advertising, originate illustrations, produce presentations and animate interactive communication ... and I'm also something of an artist.

In addition to developing ideas from concept to production, I manage projects and teams, providing communication strategies and campaign planning. I'm an exponent of Agile Principles for designing and developing customer focused user experiences, with a preference for management product development utilising the iterative approach of Scrum methodology.

Fundamentally, I'm passionate about what I do; tenaciously investigating requirements, testing concepts and engaging with stakeholders, to ensure that a project delivers suitable and successful products that satisfy the scope and exceed the expectations of the end customer.

Whatever the problem, if you need solutions to a creative challenge, I'm your man.


There aren't many things I can't do. This should give you a good idea of what I do best.

Digital Design

We are connected by worldwide digital communication; computers, tablets and smart-phones.
Digital design and the web are vital to the success and growth of your business.


Your brand's job is delivering a single clear message that is understood, shared and remembered.
You only get one chance at a first impression, so we have to get it right.

Print Design

Print reaches the senses that digital cannot, creating a tactile bond with a permanent object.
If your designs inspire and impress, they will be treasured and displayed.


Old adages are repeated simply because they're true, "a picture is worth a thousand words".
Replace wordy text with bespoke graphic punch and reinforce your key message.

The Project

... much anticipated by all.

I live in a little old cottage in Redgrave, a rural village in Suffolk, with my lovely wife Emma, our beautiful daughter Poppy (aged 4) and our ferocious guard beasts Buster and Charlie. It’s really important to me to achieve a good work-life balance, so I can spend more time being a Dad.

As you know I like to create, so enjoy building and fixing things, anything that allows me to work with my hands. I usually have a few projects on the go; I'm currently transforming a heap of scrap timber into a two storey treehouse for my daughter and sculpting a radiator mascot to be cast and chromed for a vintage car.

I'm a big fan of outdoor pursuits; long country walks, cycling, camping, off‑roading, sailing and motorcycles — although the latter seemed to have dropped from my to‑do list since becoming a husband and parent. I’ve inherited my father’s passion for vintage cars, although I’m also partial to classic sports cars and Land Rovers..
I started playing squash last year, recently purchased a kayak to dip back into watersports and I try to squeeze in a bit of painting when I have the opportunity.

I was FORTY in 2015 ... ( how did that happen ... ? ! ).
