I’m John Mchugh

InspireD Creative Solutions


My track record offers a multi skill set in design, set dressing, construction, prop making and graphics which is drawn on years of experience that first began in interior and retail design before moving across into TV.

Building on an extensive portfolio working as a TV set designer that combined both art dept and set decorating duties, my capabilities are an ideal fit for Film and HETV projects especially with the current skills shortage.

My knowledge affords the art dept or set dec dept the best of both worlds since I can provide a supportive role on either creative team as supervising art director, senior art director, set dec art director, assistant set decorator or set dresser.
