Simon Griffee

I am a curious, visual people-person. I like using tools to help bring joy to the world with problem-solving and communication. These include words, pencils, paper, cameras, Photoshop, Illustrator, Sketch, HTML, CSS, WordPress, Django, Python, JavaScript, guitars, cooking utensils and games. I also publish a candid notebook — also known as a blog — another tool for thought and education. Have a look around and get in touch whether you just want to say hello or need to bring art direction, design and photography value to your project in hands-on or consulting roles.

Thank you to everyone who has read my stuff over the years and given me such positive feedback. I would never have had the balls to apply for this job otherwise. Especially Simon Griffee who by encouraging me to write in the first place has unwittingly changed the course of my entire career. I owe you a visit and copious beers :)

—Jillian Dingwall, Writer.

Simon is a brilliant designer, a pleasure to work with, an open and creative person, honest and direct. I would recommend him for any position or assignment.
