Ted is an internationally respected Designer and Creative Director. He designed the AER brand.
“Perfume has always been a passion of mine; I remember my father’s bottle of Aramis beside the bathroom sink, and I remember the smell of my mother spraying Patou before leaving the house, I remember my first bottle of perfume: Geoffrey Beane’s Grey Flannel.”
Ted worked as a designer at famous London branding agency The Partners, before becoming an Art Director at Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent and helping to launch several iconic Gucci and YSL scents. He is the former Head of Creative at furniture retailer Habitat, and former Art Director of cycling brand Brooks England. He is also the founder of the Tweed Run, an international vintage cycling event.
Ted misspent his youth in nightclubs and music venues where developed a healthy appreciation for underground culture. His aesthetic is a marriage of high and low, of glamourising the unexpected, of stark contrasts, of beauty with an edge.
AER Accord No. 1: Nagarmotha was originally developed as a private scent for Ted.
