Paddy Uglow is obsessed with communication. He started Creative Media in the early 90s to realise this obsession. Since then he has been working creatively for individuals, charities and small organisations, designing for print and web, coming up with great ideas, filming, photographing, creating and amplifying sound and writing good copy.
In parallel to his freelance work, he has worked in further and higher education, theatre, youth work, local government, community projects and the film/media industry, gaining experience in the way people interact with information and media.
Paddy’s love of efficiency mean that the environment, the local economy and trade justice are as important to him as timeliness, good use of resources, and simple, effective design.
