Hello. My name is Craig Burgess.

I’m a designer and creative director at Genius Division. This is the place where I write and discuss what I’m up to right now. If you want to chat to me, find me on Twitter or email me.

You want more?

Hello, my name is Craig. I’m in my 30s, I live in Barnsley, I own 2 cats called Barry and Kate, and I have ginger hair. These are the simplest facts to understand about me.

I’m a designer, a marketer, a WordPress expert and a teacher. I also love cats, enjoy lifting weights, tolerate going on long walks in the rubbish English weather and I’m partial to a good video game.

When I’m not teaching with Learn the Web I’m running Genius Division, the branding and digital agency I set up in 2010.

When I’m not doing that, I’m writing stuff, podcasting about stuff or designing stuff on this website.

When I’m not doing that, I’m recreationally choking people in a martial art called Brazillian Jiu Jitsu.

I also like giving talks to audiences about design, creativity and technology. They’re frequently daft and occasionally informational. A bit like when I live-tweeted a magic trick in the middle of a web design conference.

I have a thing for challenges and seeing what I can (and can’t) achieve. Over the years I’ve made a million stupid things, such as designing a poster every day for 365 days, taking a photo every day for 365 days, designing 100 logos in 100 days, podcasting for 365 days. One time, I even wrote a book.

I think you can see the pattern here.

I’m currently not taking on any a-thing-a-day-for-365 days challenges.
