Tell us about your design career outside of Shillington.
I focus a lot on my side hustle Good Day Printing. I love anything print so I started this business purely to get away from the screen and it pretty much got out of hand after that.
What or who are you loving right now?
If you were a typeface, what would you be?
Comic Sans. Because I tend to be the odd one out.
