Jerry Pendleton

Design Manager

Jerry Pendleton’s 20 years experience has taught him to tackle each design project with methodical enthusiasm. He also believes it takes time to create a good design. Time to thoroughly understand the brief, explore a range of solutions and execute them properly. He believes discovering fascinating and interesting behind-the-scenes stories, facts and figures can be a huge influence in any design project. Jerry dabbles with a bit of furniture making, when he’s not at a gallery taking in the latest exhibitions.

Away from the studio, you’ll find Jack on the soccer field or restoring his old Porsche.
