Inside the toolkit
I like a notebook with blank pages.
Era of inspiration
Late Modern and Swiss design are two favourites of mine.
Designer on speed dial
While designers are wonderful, I find a lot of inspiration from artists. So I’m going to say, Henri Matisse.
- Firm favourite: Futura.
- A distant love: Bodoni.
- Never again: Yikes, I have never used a font I’ve become allergic to!
I use a combination of physical post-it notes and digital tools—Notion for personal use, Asana at my 9-5. But I also often find myself just flowing with what feels natural on the day.
My creative friends!
