About Ken Brophy Design

I am a Clothing / Graphics designer based in Chester.

Throughout my career, I like to think I take pride in a high quality and creative Design ability. From a very early age I have been obsessed with drawing and any sort of creative and artistic endeavours. This lead me, when an opportunity arose, into Clothing design, working as a trainee designer for a factory in Liverpool. Initially I was based in the cutting room but soon progressed and was sent by the company on a day release design course in Manchester, eventually gaining a City & Guilds diploma in clothing Design and pattern construction (but actually learnt a lot more working day to day in the factory).

Since then, I have worked for numerous UK Clothing manufactures and finally employed by a major importer (Hollas garments). Culminating over time to the position of Design Director.

In 1998 I formed my own Freelance Design Company called Ken Brophy Design Ltd. During this time I have worked for many well known companies such as:

I have been in the "Rag trade" business over 30 years and really do have a vast knowledge of clothing design and manufacture, but I’m also a firm believer in never allowing previous experiences to stop something new being done or experimenting with new ideas.
