"Design is everything to me and I am a firm believer that there is no excuse for poor design. Good design isn't just a necessary part of every day life, it's an absolute blast to create! I strive to maintain a high standard for all my work, both in concept and execution. Apart from my obsession with all things typographic, I enjoy illustrating, making prints along with messes, and singing when no one's around."
