February 27, 2014 - No Comments!


I've been working on my own for a long time now and while I love what I do, and who I do it for, I love working directly with other people too. Work is the most fun when I can collaborate with others, develop ideas in a team, and pull other skill-sets into my work. Also, to be quite honest, I miss simply having other people around at times. Freelancing is after all a solitary life.

With that in mind, I've been offered a way to scratch that particular itch, and as a result, I'll be relocating to San Francisco in March to join the design team at Goodby, Silverstein & Partners. Becoming a part of another company isn't something I had considered but when the likes of GSP come calling, you make time to have a conversation with them. Responsible for some of the most well known and most successful campaigns over the past 30 years for the likes of Adobe, the NBA, Comcast, Cisco, Doritos, and the iconic 'Got Milk?', they have one of the best pedigrees in the creative world.

Anyway, although I'm technically joining the 9-5ers I'll still be pursuing my own projects when I can, so if you have an interesting project I'll still be here to talk to about it.

Type Director’s Club Award

I'm very pleased to announce that I'm the proud recipient of The Certificate of Excellence from the Type Director's Club in New York. I was awarded for my work on 'All that is solid melts into air' for Penguin and am honoured to have had this work chosen to be part of this famous competition.

The Type Directors Club has spent over 65 years uniting and celebrating typographic leaders from around the world. Through their annual competition, they are able to highlight the best of the best typographic work in both communication and typeface design from studios and individuals both in the US and internationally.

The TDC Annual is highly respected within the design community—many consider it the highest honour and most prestigious accomplishment to be featured on its pages.

I know I certainly do.
