Michael Long

Glasgow, United Kingdom
I have a passion for all areas of design from Graphics to Fashion, many of these design areas however are linked by my love for magazines and editorial design. As well as an avid collector of various publications I also find great enjoyment in designing magazines, something which I researched heavily within my final two years of studying. As well as design I have a love of photography which I practise in my spare time, but which I also try and bring into my design work. I also enjoy using photography as a means to document events and experiences, particularly when traveling.
