introduction

I am a Manchester based designer with a passion for typography, hand drawn type, crafted design, sharpie fineliners, classic rock and a decent brew...or ten.

Born and bred in Manchester, I am a Graphic Designer. A recent graduate from Salford University, I have a passionate love for typography, crafted design and hand made elements in design. Oh, and a decent brew. I'm addicted to beautiful typography - my friends lust over the latest actor and I lust over the latest pin on my tumblr feed, or a new paper I've discovered. A self-proclaimed Graphics nerd (the best kind!) I love experimenting with new areas of design, new medias and techniques to add to my ever expanding design box of fun. The work I find myself creating more recently links both traditional and new methods of design and print, and more often than not now incorporates some 3-dimensional aspects with any materials I can get my hands on.
