Though most of my work is relegated to in-house design, I try to issue regular challenges to myself outside of the office. Some of those challenges manifest themselves from freelance work, some of them from study, and some of them are born purely out of entertainment.

We create because we can. Sometimes it's monotonous, sometimes it's weird, sometimes it's special - but it should always be fun.

I'm always on the lookout for new opportunities. If you feel like we could do something great together, feel free to contact me.
