Hello, I’m Peter Davies and I’ve been a magazine designer and illustrator for over 30 years working as an art editor and art director for most of them. I have been fortunate to work on a wide range of magazine titles dealing with subjects covering Lifestyle, Fashion, Food and Interiors. In all that time I have never lost my passion and interest for design in all its aspects.

“magazine designer & illustrator for over 30 years …as an art editor and art director”

It doesn’t matter if it’s the front cover of a leading consumer title or the local parish newsletter, the finished result should be the best I can achieve. This attitude to my work has helped me win awards for the art direction of photography as well as magazine design, the most recent, a PPA award for front cover of the year in 2015 and runner up in 2016 and 2017.

As an illustrator I have worked on  a number of projects including books, magazine features and posters

I have also exhibited as a fine artist.
