creativity
/kree-ey-tiv-i-tee/ the state or quality of being creative.


I’m Philip Drury. A graphic designer based in Exeter, Devon. I’m not going to bore you with fake corporate jargon — I just like to make the things look beautiful, clearer . Whether that be a website, logo, brochure, book or any number of things that benefit from a bit of creativity and passion, this extends to the food i cook, the house i live in, it doesn’t matter. For me, it’s about the love of making it, & making it right.

I cut my teeth on national advertising agencies but in 2006 I stepped out on my own, following a dream of creative independence. Fortunately i've been lucky enough to have worked on all manor of interesting and challenging things, big and small, challenging and rewarding.

Creative means that the work I do is of the aesthetic variety. We are artists and craftsmen. There is no assembly line, this is not a factory. I start from scratch, if i'm drafting something, i will come up with a half a dozen none starters, maybe even ponder over it for few days then to wake in the night with that killer idea, i hop downstairs, flip the espresso machine on and scurry to my desk to eke it out while it's still fresh to see if it works. And thats how it's done, for me at least.

My focus is very much design based. It's better to master of a niche than be a jack of all trades.
