Multi-disciplinary designer and partner at HemingwayDesign, specialising in placemaking and regeneration, graphics and identity, exhibition design and event curation.
In 2009 Jack turned The Tate
Liverpool into a silent disco as part of their This is Sculpture Series,
curating the exhibition Sculpture Remixed which featured works by Ron Mueck and
Antony Gormley set within a space more reminiscent of a 1970s New York discotheque
than art gallery.
In August 2010 the HemingwayDesign team launched the highly acclaimed and hugely popular Vintage Festival where he was responsible for developing the iconic branding and overseeing marketing, production, creative direction and the curation.
Two successful seasons designing and creative directing the Hemingway x Hush Puppies collaboration saw a once tired brand given a youthful context and repositioned in their marketplace.
Most recently, Jack has led the design team and creative vision behind the rebirth, restoration and regeneration of the iconic Dreamland pleasure park in Margate. Comparable cultural regeneration and community focussed projects are now underway in Weston-super-Mare at the Tropicana site, which Banksy famously transformed into Dismaland last summer, and in Portsmouth with the iconic Guildhall where HemingwayDesign are once again leading the design team and defining the vision for the renaissance of both venues.
His current projects with HemingwayDesign see him working on place brand identity for Anfield, Liverpool and Laindon, Essex, interiors for the University of Chichester’s new engineering and digital media campus, master planning and housing regeneration in Leicester, to exhibitions, event planning, products and fashion – doing it all with a community-focused conscience.
