Who would you say have been your biggest creative influences and which designers inspire your work the most?
For me it has to be Wim Crouwel and his team at Total Design (TD). Even though Total Design was only around for ten years (1963-73), TD and Wims work is timeless. I was fortunate enough to be able to go and see Wim Crouwels exhibition at the Design Museum down in London last summer. It is so refreshing to see work that was created nearly 50 years ago can be so inspirational to an up and coming designer like myself.
What route through education did you take to be the designer you are today?
After I left high school I did History, Art, and Product Design with Graphic Design at A Level. I then went straight to the University of Huddersfield to read Graphic Design. Being able to do a placement year during my time at University was one of the major selling points why I went to Huddersfield. Being able to graduate with a years experience within the design industry certainly gave me that edge over other graduates.
