How would you describe your job?
I draw and paint letters. I do logos and I’ve worked with companies like Hasbro Games on product promotion. Because I have a large social media following, there are so many different projects that come through and I get to choose the ones that I enjoy most.
What does your typical working day look like?
I try to do Monday to Friday, 9am–5pm, whether that’s in the office or I’m working from home. I make sure that I’m always creating things, whether that’s for clients or making artworks that are going to be turned into prints or doing video editing for social media.
How collaborative is your work?
I’m in a lucky position where a lot of the clients I work with trust me and give me complete creative control. That works really well for me – I work well on my own; I’m usually able to produce high-quality work that the client is pleased with.
When I’m working with agencies the projects are very collaborative and I value those just as much because they help to push me in other directions.
What has been your most exciting recent project?
Brooke Robinson from the company Goodtype reached out to me around April last year and I got to teach in the US as part of their lettering tour – that was incredible! Last year I taught in Tokyo and Singapore as well. There are a lot of people out there who are really interested in lettering and want to learn how to do it, so I’m lucky enough to be able to travel around the world and teach. I have a workshop in Oslo coming up in March, as well as talks in Hong Kong and Amsterdam.
