Tim King

Tim King has worked as a multi-disciplinary designer for just under a decade, working with global and local brands, as well as the government. Tim has worked for top design studios, including Formist, Hulsbosch, Born & Raised, Saatchi Design and Melhuish & Co. Tim enjoys producing side projects and loves getting his hands dirty with anything design related.

What do you love about design?

I love the variety of ways one can approach and execute ideas in a brief, while solving real client problems.

Why do you teach?

After working in the industry for almost a decade, I wanted to give back to the design community, and this is the best way I know how. Being at the forefront and witnessing the students progress I think is super rewarding.

Tell us about your design career outside of Shillington.

After graduating from Raffles School of Design (distinction average), I was quickly thrown into the deep end at Saatchi Design, working for global and local businesses, as well as the government. After working at Melhuish & Co for 8 years, I decided it was time to branch out and begin a freelance career to see how other studios, creative directors and teams worked within the design industry. In that time, I freelanced for Formist, Hulsbosch, and also Born & Raised.

What or who are you loving right now?

Loving Braulio Amado’s work for Good Room. Seeing his process and insane illustration style is mind blowing.

If you were a typeface, what would you be?

I would be Akzidenz Grotesk. Always embrace Akzidenz in your design process 😛
