I feel honoured to have been interviewed by the University of Leeds’ School of Design. I’ve had quite a lot of students contact me recently for advice and I really appreciate the importance of creatives at all levels supporting one another in the industry. I discussed how to get your work commissioned, gave my advice on how to price illustration work and offered some personal words of encouragement for art students. Most importantly of all, I got the chance to discuss my obsession with the structure of letters and how that obsession developed over time.

“There’s a sweet science to typography and each letter has it’s own set of rules on how they’re assembled.”
