About me

I am a designer currently based in Tokyo. Since graduating from Kingston University (UK) in 2012, I have worked at design studios in London and Tokyo, receiving recognition and awards from D&AD, Design Week and Creative Review.
In addition to my practice, I am a member of the Typocircle committee, guest tutor at universities in the UK and a mentor for Kerning The Gap.

My Creations

  1. The final lyrics of each song are typeset in rings, eventually disappearing to create an apt lasting memory for the back cover of the compilation.

    Designed with Michael Johnson at Johnson Banks.

  2. Kintsugi

    5 April 2021

    Inspired by the philosophy of the Japanese art of Kintsugi – treating breakage as part of an object’s history, rather than something to disguise. Natural forms are levitated by gold string, highlighting their fragility whilst celebrating the surrounding support.

    A project with and photographed by Joe Briggs-Price.

  3. Stepped spokes are repeated and rotated to form a symbol that can be interpreted in multiple ways – a stylised eye or planet with an orbiting moon – reflecting the many different sides of the Society’s work.

    Designed with Michael Johnson at Johnson Banks.

  4. Hanglish

    5 April 2021

    A bespoke typeface created for the Korean Culture Centre in London. Typeforms are inspired by the Korean alphabet Hangul.

    Designed with Michael Johnson at Johnson Banks. Font crafted & digitised by Hannah Kim.
