Hello, my name is Simon Warlow.

I’m an award winning accomplished multidisciplinary freelance designer. I am a creative thinker, with a keen eye for detail, a strong technical ability and a boundless enthusiasm for life and design. I immerse myself in any given design brief, working closely with clients on projects both above and below the line. I always strive to tell a story by creating bold, striking design solutions that speak for themselves and are, above all, smart. Working with businesses both big and small for the last 12 years, I help to build and improve brands, creating campaigns that work cohesively across a wide range of both digital and print media. As a designer I think innovatively, to touch hearts, inspire minds and create lasting positive impact.

Previously, I was co-founder at award winning design and video production studio Phaelon in Cardiff, I’ve worked in-house and agency-side as a designer, storyteller and brand thinker since 2004. Since then, I’ve had the opportunity to craft brand identities and integrated advertising campaigns for a variety of clients and institutions, from non-profits to industry leaders and large corporations. My work has been recognised to be of an extremely high standard and I have won a few awards along the way,  including my most recent award, a Cannes Lion for Lifesaver.

I’m motivated and a highly experienced senior creative with a strong skill set including expert knowledge of branding, print and digital media. Fluent and highly skilled in major software packages and proficient in many peripheral applications.

If you would like to know more about any of my services, or if you would like to meet me to discuss any of your upcoming projects, then please do get in touch and let’s have a chat.


I’ve been lucky enough to be honoured for my work in Advertising and design by industry pioneers like Cannes Lions, CLIO’s, Global’s and IPA.
