Im Pete Harrison, and go by the alias ‘aeiko’ which is pronounced ‘eye-ko’. Ever since I was younger I was creative and wanted to follow this direction in life, When I was 12 I wanted to be a graphic designer.
Knowing this I was able to tailor my education around what I wanted to become. At school I studied art and design, same at A-Level. I went to University and studied MediaLab Arts. This 4 years of my life can best be described as a metaphor...
MediaLab arts is a car crash between two vehicles travelling at extraordinary speeds that takes four years to happen. In one car are internationally recognised computer scientists able to teach programming and control of visual media. In the other are artists, musicians, theorists and designers who are determined to reinvent how art, language and human beings are represented in the 21st century. Miraculously everyone walks away from the crash unscarred, and from the wreckage emerges a software artist able to operate at an exceptionally creative level in both corporate and cultural industries.
Applications: Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator
Creative Fields:Illustration, Brand Design, Advertising, Digital Art, Graphic Design

So I knew I wanted a career in the creative industries.. during University I started creating digital art, and by the time I had finished I had quite a few artworks to show, so I set up a website to showcase these.
I began posting on a few community and social sites and networking with other designers and illustrators. I was featured in a few magazines and books and exposure started to grow. I took a fulltime job in London working at an agency, and while I was here I set up a clothing label as a hobby, I called this Funkrush, and commissioned a bunch of friends to do some designs for me.
Funkrush developed very fast and now showcase’s designs by some of today’s top illustrators and
designers as well as being stocked in shops all over the UK and Europe. Alongside this (and my fulltime job) I decided to take up freelance and gained some high end clients in the fields of graphic design, web and interactive media, my online presence was still expanding. I was recognized by Computer Arts
magazine as one in ten internationally recognised designers in the year 2006.
As you can imagine I was super busy, I was getting more freelance projects and funkrush was expanding even bigger, so I decided to quit my agency job and take up freelance full time. I moved back to Devon, southwest UK - this is where I grew up, although I loved London I think this place suits my lifestyle more. In between all of this I set up the Desktopography project and got loads of friends involved in that too, read more in the projects section!
About a year ago I was chatting with my friend Olly Moss and we decided to set up a new project, called SuperCombo, it sells unique, high quality clothing and items inspired by our love of videogames, anime and general nerdyness. Its pretty new and runs as a sister company to Funkrush, keep an eye on that because we have lots of great ideas and products to come!
So this is what I currently do..im a freelance graphic designer running a few creative projects on the side, you can read more about them on this website, also feel free to check out my blog for updates and other fun things! Enjoy!
