Creative Director, WillB Brand Consultants

A chartered designer, with a degree in Transport Design, and 20-years’ experience in the UK rail sector. Will has a unique set of characteristics and qualifications that sets him apart from your run-of-the-mill brand consultant.

After graduating from the University of Huddersfield, he was selected for Interfleet’s (now part of SNC-Lavalin) graduate training scheme (which was based on the British Rail one). He then went on to work in their industrial design department, where he worked on all manner of rolling stock enhancement projects, as well as Interfleet’s own marketing communications. After six-years with Interfleet he ventured off on his own, and for the last decade, has carved out a niche as the go-to brand consultant within the UK rail industry.

A former member of Young Rail Professional’s executive committee, a current member of the Railway Industry Association, he regularly consults for Transport for London, Network Rail, Hitachi Rail, RSSB and numerous others.

He is a compelling advocate of design and branding, and sets out to help organisations visualise change. If you would like to learn more about what he could do for you, please do get in touch, by email on: will@willbaxter.com
