Designer. Director. Creative.
I am an award winning creative director and multi disciplined designer based in London. Well versed in branding, design & creative direction with a comprehensive portfolio of brand identities, motion design, print, advertising, 360 campaigns and digital.
I have an insatiable passion for all disciplines of design, with a particular interest in building and inspiring teams to create rewarding brand experiences for a wide range of clients.
I try to deliver design innovations that strengthen brands and produce compelling content that pushes boundaries and challenges the status quo – work that wins awards and makes an impact on clients and consumers.
Awards and commendations received include a global D&AD award, two DRUM awards, two US Telly awards and an armful of Promax Golds. Furthermore, I was named ‘Collaborative Colleague of the year’ and ‘Creative Innovator of the year’ at the annual UKTV awards and awarded ‘Designer of the year’ from the University of the Creative Arts.
I began my career with the BBC creating motion graphics and title sequences as a freelance designer. I then began rebranding TV channels at a Camden based design agency, as I worked my way up to become lead designer. I then moved into post production, becoming Head of Design at an agency in the heart of Soho, creating TV commercials, music videos and digital content for clients across music, theatre and entertainment in both London and New York.
Today I am Head of Design at UKTV, helping to build a Creative department that is a force to be reckoned with in the creative, broadcast and design industries. Winning awards, gaining recognition and continuing to have a tone of fun on the way.
I’m a loving father and husband at home, with a passion for clay pigeon shooting in the British countryside. (when it’s not raining!)

“Having worked at large agencies and then had my own for many years, I can honestly say that Peter Allinson was one of the best creatives I have ever worked with.

And beyond that a thoroughly nice gentleman and a pleasure to work with.”
