Me with our 2½ year old daughter Milly

About me

I started my career as a Graphic Designer in the UK. In 2012 I quit the comfort of my day job and relocated to Hong Kong with my wife in search of a new life and greater opportunities. As a stranger to the City I struggled to find a job and having been inspired by Johnny Cupcakes I decided to start designing my own t-shirts. The t-shirts themselves were a flop and they still remain unsold to this day. The swing tags that were inside the shirts however are where this story begins.

Having created a couple of rubber stamps to use on my swing tags, I started getting custom requests from strangers on Instagram. In 2013 I CoFounded Stamptitude and my love affair with stationery has not stopped since.
