I am the Co-Founder and CCO of COLLINS. I’m married to the fabulously talented Mary Finlayson (Painted Mary), have a very pretty dog named Japhy and am expecting a little girl in February.


Design is a complex process requiring collaboration and a multitude of skills to do well. A confluence of graphics, typography, color theory, motion graphics, strategic insights, language, business considerations, project management, art history and cultural context — which is both fascinating and exceedingly difficult.

The content of this site is the result of hundreds of people and particularly the hardwork of my COLLINS SF team. All work shown was either created or creative directed by me.

I am appreciative of the awards and opportunities I have recieved for it.
I have been fortunate to learn from some great teachers at both the Alberta College of Art Design and The School of Visual Arts Designer as Author Masters program.

Professionally I have worked closely with Brian Collins for the past 9 odd years, after studying under him at SVA.

In 2012 I left for a year to join Airbnb as the Graphic Design Lead.

In 2015 I founded COLLINS San Francisco.
