What is Project Whatever?
In 2020, as I turned 50, I started to think about my archive.
For over 30 years, I have amassed an extensive collection of sketched-out part ideas and developed a few more further, and some are just a single graphics or a page of scribbled text. Rather than create even more new idea concepts, I will spend the rest of this decade bringing these archived ideas to life under Project Whatever.
Two years in, although I am starting to implement some of my archives, I need to improve. Most of my output remains new designs, although based on learning from 30+ years, so it counts in a way.

How does my design commission service work?
- Consultation: The process begins with a consultation, either in person or online, where you can share your ideas and requirements. I will discuss timelines, budgets, and details to help you better understand your commission.
- Concept Development: I will develop initial concepts and sketches for your review based on the consultation. This stage will allow further refinement and adjustments to ensure the design meets your expectations.
- Design Creation: I will work on the final design once the idea is finalised. In the future, I will provide updates and ask for your feedback to make sure I am on the right track.
- Review and Revisions: After the initial design is completed, I will present it to you for review. If you need any revisions, we will accommodate them to ensure you’re satisfied with the final result. So that you know, this may incur extra costs.
- Delivery: Once the design is approved, I will complete the finishing touches and prepare the final product for delivery. I take great care in packaging and shipping to ensure your commissioned piece arrives safely.
