Decorative Typeface - Personal Project
Well, occasionally. Usually it's just slightly-above-average stuff, but every once in a while something rather awesome will pop up and I'll be pretty chuffed with myself. I'm currently on a break from studying at the Auckland University of Technology - and I've gotten pretty used to having no money. So I figured I may as well just do all my work for free.
Yep, free graphic design. Click here to learn more.
Business cards, annual reports, menus for shady kebab shops, I'll do it all. I'm particularly interested in this avenue of design. Let me do your gig posters.

One man would overcome the pure, penetrating fear that seeped into the very heart of any designer hearing the words “oi Bro-hemian Rhapsody, you should fully do one of those 52 Weeks of Graphic Design projects bro, you’re pretty good at doing that sort of computer stuff and whatnot”. Uttered by a misguided cousin or an overly intoxicated friend determined to prove his bro-love, the words were always meant with good intentions.
