Hi, I’m Gareth Otton, but for the purposes of this website feel free to call me The Chunky Designer.
I am a designer currently working in Pembrokeshire. I have experience in everything from web design, branding and illustration right through to custom murals and car wraps.
Whatever your design needs, there’s More to Love with The Chunky Designer.
So, why Chunky?
When naming my brand I did the old trick of thinking of things about myself that’s different or stands out from the competition. Of course I exhausted the usual designer traits such as:
- Being passionate about design
- Thinking outside the box
- Having a flair for creativity
- and many more
I then resorted to listing some semi-joking qualities. However, when I wrote down the word Chunky, it did more than make me smile; it made a strange kind of sense.
Beyond the obvious flattering reference to my manly physique, Chunky is as good a name as any for my style of design as any.
I like to create designs that are big, bold and stand out. I’m at my best when I’m having fun so I like to put a bit of humour into my work. But what really made me realise that Chunky was the way forward was when I put it together with the tagline, ‘More to Love’.
That’s (hopefully) my work in a nutshell. I like to create work where there’s a lot to love about it.
Ask any designer who enjoys their job and they’ll tell you that one of the best moments a designer can experience is when they unveil their design for the first time and the client is so in love with what they see they can’t stop grinning. They just have to immediately show it to their friends, family and maybe even a stranger who passes them in the street. It’s what’s most fun about being in the creative business and it’s why I love what I do.
Take a look at the work on this website to see what I do best. If you’re interested in what you see, please get in touch using the details on my contact page.
I’m excited to hear from you soon.
