Learn from designers with industry expertise.

I love the puzzle-solving aspect of design, trying to find that good solution you know is out there.

What do you love about design?

I love the puzzle-solving aspect, trying to find that good solution you know is out there. Also standing back at the end of the project and seeing how far it’s grown from the initial concept seed.

Why do you teach?

The design world seems daunting at first, but it’s great when you finally get confidence and let your individual style show. If I can help others to reach this point then I will be happy.

Tell us about your design career outside of Shillington.

I have worked for agencies that have covered all disciplines from digital to branding to environmental graphics, and feel lucky to have had such well-rounded experience. I have worked on many UK high-street brands aswell as some international jobs that have required research to try and understand what design might appeal to their culture. I have been freelancing most of my career, and at the minute I am entirely self-sufficient with branding projects in the UK, Russia and Kazakhstan.

What or who are you loving right now?

Trying to learn how to create calligraphy-style lettering, although I find precious hours disappearing just from playing around. I bought pens and paper for the traditional approach, but also a brush for iPad to use with Illustrator Draw. The possibilities are exciting, so I’m hoping for the opportunity to use this in a project soon!

If you were a typeface, what would you be?

Maybe ‘Intro Rust’. At first seems a bit all over the place, but actually just full of possibilities to get an interesting, fun solution.
