Learn from designers with industry expertise.

I never stop learning and teaching is a way for me to continue learning about the industry that I love because it is always evolving.

What do you love about design?

I love that design is everywhere and in everything that we see. It’s not just the logo on a product, it’s the thought process that has gone into why that product even exists in the first place, right down to how someone is going to interact with it. From how it might stack on a shelf, move around a web page when you scroll or catch your eye as you roll past on the bus. It’s all about the details. It’s creativity with a purpose, a point. Well it is for me anyway!

Why do you teach?

The world is full of selfish people who don’t like to share ideas. It is also full of bad design. Teaching, for me, helps to bring back the balance by sharing my design knowledge, hopefully I can also help to better the standard of design in the world, at least a little bit. Also I am a huge believer in “everyday is a school day”. I never stop learning and teaching is a way for me to continue learning about the industry that I love because it is always evolving.

Tell us about your design career outside of Shillington.

Outside my teaching at Shillington, I am a freelance graphic designer. Working directly with some great clients from all sectors, I get to flex, on the daily, all my design muscles from editorial layouts and illustration to brand strategy and UX.
