Award-winning graphic design from Al Wellburn

Greetings! I’m Al Wellburn, a seasoned graphic designer with over two decades of creative exploration under my belt. I’ve always had a passion for embarking on exciting world-building journeys through design.

With my experience spanning various design disciplines, project management skills, and a keen artistic eye, I bring a wealth of expertise to any team. Over the course of 13 years at my own agency, I’ve had the privilege of crafting award-winning marketing and communications campaigns for renowned charities like Amnesty International, Friends of The Earth, and ActionAid, leaving a positive impact worldwide. After that, I worked as a Design Manager for Oxford University Press, creating engaging design content in the English Language Teaching department.

I have now moved into the realm of graphics for Film and Television. My hands-on experience in designing everything from brands to websites has provided a solid foundation for me to dive headfirst into the world of visual storytelling. I’m thrilled to create new worlds and weave compelling narratives through the art of graphic design.

Originally from Edinburgh, I am available to work anywhere. I’m always on the lookout for new projects, fresh challenges, and exciting career opportunities. If you’re interested in collaborating on a project or simply want to connect, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
