All specialist equipment needs high performance fuel and designers are no different. One of these and I’m all set for a morning’s creativity.


A compilation of bite-sized books designed to keep my mind occupied while sunbathing. From Darwin’s Natural Selection to Machiavelli’s The Prince, its small size belies the big ideas it explores.


The ideal all–terrain running shoe. Waterproof, hard wearing and super comfortable. Ideal for those morning beach runs, exploring jungle terrain, or running down cliffs.


Designed for sketching and shading, I find these far more effective than pencils when illustrating ideas. Plus, they are so long lasting! My first graphite pen got me through an entire year of ideas at college.


I love this book for its economic elegance. Preparing good food is all about a few fresh ingredients, which tantalise the palette. That economy will come in handy if island ingredients are limited.


I couldn’t live without music. This baby delivers pristine sound and is packed into a tiny package. This would accompany me everywhere.

Tracks for the jukebox

  • Paul Weller – Wild Wild Wood

    or those moments of quiet island introspection.

  • Cinematic Orchestra – All That You Give

    Soaring melodies, understated rhythm and that voice. Fontella Bass gives us her all.

  • Tame Impala – The Less I Know The Better

    Hazy psychedelic soundscapes produced by Kevin Parker would perfectly accompany my piña colada.

  • Marvin Gaye – Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)

    The standout track from one of the best albums ever produced. 50 years on, I still haven’t found its equal.

  • Beastie Boys – Sure Shot

    One of those fun songs that remind you to never, ever quit.

  • PJ Harvey – This is Love

    Because who wouldn’t want to be stuck on a desert island with the passionate Miss Harvey?

  • The Juan Maclean – Happy House

    Delivers exactly what it says on the tin. This is every euphoric dance floor moment delivered across 12 and a half expansive minutes.

  • James Brown – Call Me Superbad

    For those moments I want to strut across the surf, knowing I’m the baddest mother on the whole island.

  • Chic – I Want Your Love

    Yes, it’s unashamedly disco. I can imagine this playing across a fire-lit beachside café on a warm summer evening.
