I’m Lawrence, a creative designer and illustrator based in Gateshead. I have nearly two decades of commercial experience working with some of the most ambitious agencies and brands in the North East and beyond. Throughout my career I have helped businesses of all sizes achieve their creative and marketing objectives in sectors such as sport, tech, media and culture.

I formed Stork & Owl in 2020, providing clients and agencies with a full creative service. I achieve this by drawing on my own varied skillset and working closely with a network of specialists.
