Illustrator, Graphic Designer & Product Designer

Phil Howell Design

About

Hi, my name is Phil.

Passionate about product design, illustration, graphic design and development, I am a creative professional with a strong background in driving innovation and brand consistency and 15 years of professional experience.

I have a Bachelors Degree in Graphic Media and a Foundation Degree in Art (including graphic design & fashion), along with extensive experience working with lifestyle product companies. I excel in conceptualizing designs, pitching to new and existing clients, and leading teams to success.

My expertise lies in identifying new product opportunities, running new idea sessions, and staying updated on industry trends, in order to drive creative strategy effectively. I have a proven track record of building strong relationships, handling change, and collaborating across departments to achieve outstanding results.

Proficient in CAD drawing, Adobe Creative Suite, and Microsoft Office, as well as Procreate and Procreate Dreams, I possess the skills to communicate design ideas effectively and create compelling prototypes. My ingenuity, creativity, and resilience, combined with a forward-thinking mentality, have allowed me to translate industry trends into growth opportunities for renowned brands.

Culturally sensitive and well-versed in local markets across EMEA, I am dedicated to maintaining brand integrity and driving product innovation. I have spent the last 12 years travelling around the world to achieve my goal of visiting every Disney Resort across the globe, which has led me to explore both coasts of America, China, Japan, France and the rest of Europe. Although I am yet to visit Africa, I have worked on a number of children’s books based on African culture, winning a Silver Award for representing African Heritage.

Flexible and adaptable to business needs, I am committed to delivering excellence in every project I undertake. I pride myself on being friendly, open, respectful and reliable. I’m always keen to make new friends and treat my clients like family.

My interests include:
Travel: I love Asia and California in particular
Collecting Vinyl: from Taylor Swift to NOFX
Theme parks
Fashion
Reading: I’m currently reading a lot of classic fiction.
I love film, especially animation
Star Wars
And I love cooking and I love eating more.

I am excited about the prospect of working with you and look forward to creating compelling and innovative products to tell your story, and that resonate with global audiences.
