A   p i o n e e r   f o r :

 

'Vogue’ Magazine

 

Worked closely with photographer Norman Parkinson.

 

Invented the use of the letter 'V' in 'Vogue', titled on its side, as a symbol, in instances of discontinuation of text, 
at the foot and at the top of pages: so that, instead of the phrases: "continued to" & "contunued from", which were in use up until that point in time, since its inception, this 'V' symbol has been in use, as: e.g.:   > 123   &   < 101

 

Fortnum & Mason

 

Conceiving, utilizing and establishing the famous ‘Fortnum & Mason’ Clock, depicting Mr Fortnum and Mr Mason, as a symbol, for all F&M ‘own brand’ products, instead of the Royal warrants.

Applying the 'Fortnum & Mason' Clock, in its symbolic form, to non-food merchandise, e.g.: kitchenware, oven-to-tableware.
