What do you love about design?

I love being able to execute the crazy ideas that I have in my head and turn them into something real.

Why do you teach?

I want to share the real-world knowledge that I wish I had when I was studying graphic design.

Tell us about your design career outside of Shillington.

I worked in Chicago at the ad agency Ogilvy & Mather and then at an auction house called Wright. I recently decided to pursue a career in freelance design and illustration and moved to New York.

What or who are you loving right now?

I just watched Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse and I was blown away by the beautiful animation and colorful art style of the movie. It’s fresh and unlike any other superhero or animated movie I’ve seen.

If you were a typeface, what would you be?

Arnold Bocklin. It’s maximalist, decorative and expressive, the opposite of clean Swiss-type, but not tacky.

What’s your favourite blog?

I love Motionographer and No Film School. Great inspiration for animation and film, and great resources for anyone interested in those fields.
