If you look, design touches you in every part of your life. And that’s kinda cool.
Why do you teach?

Tell us about your design career outside of Shillington.
It’s spanned many years, traversed continents and been a fun and adventurous ride along the way. Working with big corporates with huge budgets to free work for mates who only offer a few coldies as payment—every brief has been fresh and exciting. I’m presently working on projects now that I pick, having more fun and pushing the norms of the everyday.
If you were a typeface, what would you be?
I would be Helvetica—a Classic and reliable typeface. Clean and streamlined, it doesn’t get bogged down in superfluous detail or decoration. Its versatility and simplicity is its key and you’re the master of both.
