I saw a photography series by Franck Bohbot and was inspired to do a little typography experiment using my favourite fonts, pangram, orelo wide and silk sans.

Pangram is the perfect sans serif font, with just enough character to not feel cold. Silk serif pairs nicely with both and I wanted to incorporate a serif font into this project.

Pangram Pangram is one of my favourite type foundries at the moment. You can find their fonts here: https://pangrampangram.com/. They do some beautiful typefaces and I have been dying to try out two in particular: Mondwest & Neue World.

old meets new

This experiment combines one of my favourite fonts, Helvetica, with a font called Love from https://vj-type.com/. It’s a quirky mashup of old and new, but I have used this exercise to push my design style.


A type & design series, featuring a different font monthly.

I decided to start a new typographic experiment series. First up for july is Gilroy, the perfect choice for any product, website or app.

Gilroy is a great example of an extremely modern and versatile font. I decided to pair this experiment with a limited colour palette and use the medium and light versions of the font.

Designers who thrive

Design systems are an extremely hot topic at the moment, however this is not an article about creating better design systems in order to thrive in chaos (although I LOVE a good system)… This is a musing on how we can help ourselves and those we lead to thrive in a chaotic environment.

When I became a design manager, I immediately began a process of creating new brief templates, design pods, design review structures, effective timing of jobs - basically any structure that would shield my design team from chaos.

The catch is… I still work in digital advertising and there is always going to be a little (OR A LOT) of chaos - chaos that you can’t always control or plan for. …
