Tell us about your design career outside of Shillington.
After 12 years wearing a few different hats (designer, art director, brand designer and strategic designer) for clients that include large corporates, property, beauty, fashion, government and insurance, my current path has seen me realise that I can use my skills as a force for good and as such I have found myself working in-house for a purpose-driven business helping to grow an internal design team.
What or who are you loving right now?
Cookbooks. I have this unhealthy obsession with buying cookbooks not only for their design but because I tend to eat with my eyes! I just love how design can trigger the senses.
If you were a typeface, what would you be?
Slapstick Dental (Joking. Or am I?)
