What do you love about design?

I love how design is all around us and in every part of our lives, even without always realising it. For me, working through a design is all about stripping a problem back to its basic form and communicating that message in the simplest way possible.

Why do you teach?

I teach because I am as passionate about design today as I was when first starting out and I love seeing that passion and interest for design in the students. It’s such a great process to be part of—we have students come in that have never used a Mac before, and they graduate with the skills to be a designer. It also keeps me on my toes and gives me a fresh perspective on things as I am surrounded by 47 students that have completely different outlooks. I find this ends up influencing my design work too.

Tell us about your design career outside of Shillington.

After working for 10 years in agencies in Manchester and Sydney, A few years ago I set up my own studio that specialises predominantly in branding. I love having the freedom of working for my own clients and collaborating with new talent.

If you were a typeface what would you be?

Effra – modern, clean and functional.
