Recently named Scottish designer of the year, Michael Fraser, has joined Manchester-based design consultancy The Chase as creative team leader.
Fraser had previously spent two stints, totalling seven years, at Edinburgh group EH6. While there, he worked on projects for The Scottish Arts Council, Scottish Screen and Tennents Caledonian in his capacity as creative director.
In between, Fraser spent a year in London at Addison Design developing work for clients which include The Boots Company and Dresdner Kleinwort Benson.
The Chase creative director Ben Casey describes Fraser’s addition as “a real honour” for the consultancy.
Fraser adds: “The Chase’s creative reputation and combined personalities provide a great springboard to producing excellent work.
“It has a very similar set-up to EH6, though its calibre of clients is different and there is more scope here.”
