Most people know me as @scjammycustard, and as the Creative Director of Jammy Custard Studios Ltd, but as you’re here, you may also know me as my alter ego; Purple Pepper. This is my personal blog, where I talk about random things, and share with you my illustrations, digital art and, most recently, photography. There is also likely to be a lot of LEGO.
So, since you’re here, I’ll tell you a little more about myself…
I was born in Pontypridd twenty-something years ago, and made it through school relatively unscathed, whereupon I packed my bags and legged it over the bridge to Swindon to do my degree with the University of Bath. I stayed in Swindon for 8 years, before moving back home in October 2010. I brought a souvenir back with me, and we were married last April at Castell Coch. It didn’t rain.
Since graduating I’ve worked as a print designer for a successful design agency and as part of an inhouse creative department for the UK’s largest direct marketing book club, managing and editing both their member magazines and e-commerce websites. I’ve been lucky enough to work with high profile clients such as Honda, Arval, Stanley Security Solutions, Great Western Railway, The University of Reading, and The Royal Artillery. I won’t bore you any more with the details – if you want to know more about me from a professional standpoint you can head on over to my Linkedin profile. These days I’m over at Jammy Custard Studios Ltd, where much fun is to be had making businesses irresistible with effective branding, design, marketing, websites and videos (among other things!) We also play with LEGO.
I also have a tendency to collect qualifications (yes, I’m one of those – sorry). I have diplomas in Marketing, Advertising and Business Management, and in other not-so-career-relevant but very interesting subjects such as Advanced Psychology, Basic Philosophy and Criminology.
Most importantly, though, I have a penchant for horror films and impractical shoes, and a distinct weakness for sushi and whiskey, though rarely together (bad experiences…), and, as if you hadn’t guessed… LEGO! A more personal overview of my favourite things lives in my ABC – Get to know me post.
Please feel free to leave a comment below to let me know who you are, what brought you here and what you think of my little collection of randomness.
