What do you love about design?
I love that it’s structured art, the science of design combined with the beauty of creativity, where the left and the right brain meet, it’s awesome.
Why do you teach?
I wanted to teach to inspire and be inspired. After many years in the design industry, I felt that it was time to pass on some of that hard-earned knowledge and in return see the amazing creativity and new point of view that comes from fresh eyes.
Tell us about your design career outside of Shillington.
I’ve worked in a couple of countries (NZ, CAN, AUS) in-house and agency side in marketing, advertising, corporate, branding and mainly in the fashion industry. Most recently I’ve been delving into content creation upping my styling and photography skills for social media use.
If you were a typeface, what would you be?
Gotham, it’s a cool, calm, classic sans serif that stands by itself if needed but works really well with others. Nice well-rounded font with confident quietness.

I love interior design, so The Design Files is my daily go-to.
