Pâté is a London-based graphic artist with a quick wit and a strong, simple aesthetic. Working to the mantra that the ‘Idea is King’, Pâté creates concept-led images and type compositions for a variety of commercial briefs.

Pâte’s innate ability to convert concepts into colourful and visually arresting images was honed over his successful career as an Advertising creative and Creative Director, with work that earned him over 130 industry awards, including the coveted D&AD Yellow Pencil twice. Now firmly established with nearly 10 years’ experience in the commercial Art landscape, Pâté enjoys a reputation of being masterful and ingenious with his concept-led images.

Pâté has been shortlisted numerous times in the AOI World Illustration Awards, has sat on the lauded D&AD Awards jury and regularly lectures around the country on the power of visual imagery.
