Graphic Designer & Type Designer, North East England…
I love creating type and I love using type! Together these skills reflect off one another enabling me to use them to their best advantage. Having an awareness of the end product and knowing its intended use in its graphic design situation has a great effect on the design of the typeface, in turn understanding typefaces in detail allows me to create the perfect layout, knowing what is best suited for what job and how to engage with the audience clearly and effectively.
Since graduating I have published 11 typefaces including Jotia used by Qatar airways and Grottel used by Bershka. I have also completed numerous freelance graphic design projects and bespoke type design projects. My typographic skills were accredited in 2013 by ISTD (the International society of typographic designers) and in 2016 I went to Reading University to complete an intensive summer course in Type Design to further develop my skills in type design. My skills have now ventured into online marketing and social media where I enjoy helping Traditional Beams improve their online presence whilst still cresting new typefaces..
