The Flags

Welcome to my website.

Ive reduced it right down to a very simple format with few images, to reduce the rampant plagiarism.

If you have seen the flags before in the flesh then you wont need to see lots of glossy images and video as you will already know what they are. But if you havent seen them  and would like more information, please go to the Contact  page and get in touch, giving as much info as possible about your project.

The About page has a statement and a press interview for Quantas  that deals with some autobiography.

I don’t generally get involved with corporate-led or commercial projects, although I am always open to interesting work and ideas- the more creative the better:  please see  the Projects page for more detail.

The preferred context for the  flags is good open natural breezy space.

Thank you

Angus Watt
