What do you love about design?
I love design for its ability to evoke a certain feeling. I look at design pieces the way I look at music compositions; the former is visual while the latter is aural yet, to me, they provide for a similar sensory experience.
Why do you teach?
I teach because it brings me peace to share what I have learned in my career with people and help them in their journey. It’s even more fun to learn from my students in return as they all come from different backgrounds and have loads to share with us.
Tell us about your design career outside of Shillington.
Pretty much all of my time outside of Shillington is devoted to my music and its evolution. Having said that, I do design all of my band’s visuals. Furthermore, I have a tendency to pick up a personal typeface design project and forget about it for 6 years.
