Backstory

I Love Grids® is the work of someone called Stuart Cockburn (that's me). My personal name is less relevant to the world than the fact that I love grids. Hence, I Love Grids®.

A brand name – with its connoted values – can instantly connect with more people than a generic (if relatively rare) human name can. My name is not relevant: what I believe in is.

I work in graphic design and offer freelance creative services which typically relate to the design of text-heavy printed documents.

I also have ideas of my own, and I am developing brand identities to represent and express them. You can find them on this website. My ideas include We Love Grids®, Hidden Primate® and Free All Birds®.

Mission

I Love Grids® sets out to use design and other forms of creativity to help make the lives of humans and all other animals happier, healthier, fairer and more equal.
