Gareth studied Fine Art at Liverpool’s prestigious John Moores University in the 1980s’ where he met partner Helen Brown, and the Definitive1, Design partnership was formed. Post University, Gareth fine tuned his educated design eye amongst the antique markets and houses across Europe, finding gems for both collectors and clients alike. These early years of restoring and reworking beautifully crafted pieces helped to inspire and inform Gareth’s design direction, and remain a key part of his creative influence today. Gareth has great enthusiasm for all aspects of late 20th Century design, from house hold pieces to classic cars. Gareth is Definitive1, Creative & Operations Director, and works closely with each member of the design and operations team to ensure the fantastic delivery of each scheme.
