Blank. Lines get in the way. I don’t sketch but I do take lots of notes.

Era of inspiration

Unknown. The era I research and reference is directly related to whatever specific project I’m working on—I let that lead me.

Designer on speed dial

Brian Collins.


  • Firm favourite: Inter. Free, clean, uncomplicated. I use it for all agency collateral.
  • A distant love: Any reverse italics. GT Planar in particular.
  • Never again: Montserrat.

Organisational method

I use a combination of pen-on-paper and digital tools to keep on top of projects. However, sometimes I just let myself go with the flow.

Trusted advisor

I always like to ask my husband because he knows absolutely nothing about design! Sometimes we get stuck in our own design heads and having a “regular” point of view really helps.
