About

biz cards

I am a consulting artist whose work combines graphic facilitation, sketchnoting, illustration, animation and more. Prior to working as a consulting artist, I had a corporate career in senior operational management roles, with 8 years in financial services and 3 years in a global consulting business. The deep experience I gained working across multi-disciplinary functions and projects informs all of my work. You can find out a bit about my former incarnations and see what people I’ve worked with have to say about me here.

I also offer cartoons for publication or for corporate communications use on any subject matter you care to throw at me. Examples of my cartooning can be found here or here and on my Twitter timeline Animation work is similar in construction to those you may have seen for the RSA. Most of my previous client work is confidential but you can see an example of my animations here.

Traditional media work is predominantly undertaken in pen, ink and watercolour. Digital pieces are created using a mix of Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. Animations are filmed in conjunction with a production studio I trust and in HD quality MP4 format. All work can be delivered digitally in a wide variety of file formats.
Pricing is very competitive but bespoke to each commission and client budget and depends greatly on the complexity of the work requested.

I am also a writer and commentator on issues affecting the world of work and this blog was set up as a forum for getting my thoughts down. In addition to blogging, I also write regularly for OfficeInsight and have written for Work&Place. Writing about and keeping abreast of trends and issues in the world of work helps keep my thinking fresh and this in turn informs my corporate artworking offer.

If you are interested in a conversation about how I can help you, drop me a line at sjheath@live.co.uk or tweet me @SimonHeath1 and I’ll come straight back to you. I’d love to hear what you need to say or the challenges you’re facing and help you bring your story to life in a unique way.

  1. [...] I love the Twitter community: thank you  to Simon Heath @SimonHeath1 for the following Birthday Blog [...]

  2. Hello
    I am responsible for the article in Personnel Today. When we publish survey reports as news stories we are not endorsing the findings. When we want to make an editorial comment we make it clear that is what we are doing. I am not a statistician but I understand that a sample size of 100 or more is considered reasonable to extrapolate from. In this case the sample size is lower than that and readers of the news story can draw their own conclusions from that. Nevertheless it is a survey of HR directors and it is worthy of note that so high a proportion feel their HR functions are “ineffective” and taken with other evidence the finding doesn’t seem out of line with what you would expect in general. On another point, you cite Stephen Jay Gould to give authority to your argument, but Gould isn’t without his critics either – for example Stephen Pinker, the experimental psychologist and science writer has accused Gould of drawing false conclusions from data that doesn’t support his own views.

    1. Thank you for taking the time to comment Noel. I was, of course, not calling into question journalistic integrity. I merely wanted to point out that data can be open to shades of interpretation and your point about Gould serves to reinforce that cautionary note.
