Octopus has got just that little bit bigger today with the arrival of Pete Mallon, our new Senior Designer. We’ve been hunting high and low for an experienced designer with a bit of magic, creativity and know how.
An introduction to Pete Mallon:
I have always enjoyed design from an early age, son to an artist and nephew to a printer. It's in my blood I suppose! I can always remember being taught how to draw, sitting for hours in my dad's studio, drawing anything and everything with his endless range of Pantone markers.
My love of art continued through school and into college where I specialised in Magazine Design and Information Graphics. Placements at the Sunday times Style Magazine, The Evening chronicle and Accent Magazines led me onto a full time position with Accent where I worked on a vast range of publications including: Paul Collingwood's testimonial Brochure, Owais Shah, Phil Bennett and Tom May brochure. 6 years later with a wealth of knowledge in the publishing and advertising world, I have a new exciting challenge at an expanding - successful design agency, Octopus Media.
I love typography, photography and innovative design. Where would the world be without design? When you are creating something visual that can influence anyone, that's a big responsibility - but what makes the job so satisfying. I'm constantly researching the latest designs, fonts, current trends and using this knowledge to create stimulating pieces of design to communicate with everyone who sees it.
