Why did I start drawing letters?
I've been thinking it could be interesting to share my story and why I started shifting my focus in "traditional" graphic design to lettering and illustration and how I made that work for me.
I've been wanting an iPad Pro since they've announced it back in 2015. I love drawing on paper but sometimes it's not the most practical way to work so it seemed like the perfect tool to introduce in my workflow. I also own a Wacom Intuos M tablet, which I still use, but it never felt natural to draw and to look at the computer screen while doing it.
Back in August I was commissioned by Exhibitor magazine to create a full-page illustration for an article titled 'Four Critical Factors That Affect Graphic Costs'. The brief was to create a main sign design with the title and then other smaller signs around it. The references were based on work I've done before so I was pretty comfortable with this project.
I had the pleasure of being interviewed for the second issue of the new Kodak magazine titled Kodachrome. It is the perfect publication for anyone who loves art, film and analog culture.
That's a great question. After all, who still has a blog in 2017?
I've been using my Instagram professionally for 4 years. It's a great tool to share your work and communicate with others. One of my favourite parts of posting is writing the caption. I love to give insights about what I'm posting, whether that's explaining the process or sharing how the project came to be.
