He has lived and worked globally for world renowned brands and creative agencies, crafting environments for education, airport terminals, hotels, art galleries, restaurants, malls and cinemas.
With Uxus, Ian previously worked on the retail concepts and delivery for the Tate Modern extension and Tate Britain, as well as multiple projects for the Rijksmusem, Amsterdam.
