Learn from designers with industry expertise.

I love encouraging students to reach beyond their expectations, getting them to push past what is comfortable into new and uncharted waters.

What do you love about design?

If you look, design touches you in every part of your life. And that’s kinda cool.

Why do you teach?

The best moment for me is witnessing a student grasp a concept for the first time. There is no better reward than helping a student finally reach clarity, and this moment can be life-changing for them. I love encouraging students to reach beyond their expectations, getting them to push past what is comfortable into new and uncharted waters.

Tell us about your design career outside of Shillington.

It’s spanned many years, traversed continents and been a fun and adventurous ride along the way. Working with big corporates with huge budgets to free work for mates who only offer a few coldies as payment—every brief has been fresh and exciting. I’m presently working on projects now that I pick, having more fun and pushing the norms of the everyday.

If you were a typeface, what would you be?

I would be Helvetica—a Classic and reliable typeface. Clean and streamlined, it doesn’t get bogged down in superfluous detail or decoration. Its versatility and simplicity is its key and you’re the master of both.

What’s your favourite blog?

I am not a massive blog person, but if I had to pick things that I’m into then they would be, Ads of the World, Wieden+Kennedy for all their Nike ads and Droga5.
