I’m an experienced and passionate writer and creative insights researcher, living and working in London. I began my career writing for Grafik Magazine and have since gone on to contribute to a number of international magazines including UPPERCASE, Mollie Makes, Computer Arts, Print and Blanket.

I have written sixteen design books covering a range of subjects including typography, maximalist design, letterpress printing and stationery design. They have been published worldwide by Rotovision, Chronicle Books, Jacqui Small and Thames & Hudson. Titles include Type Specific, Poster-Art, Maximalism, Handmade Type, Reinventing Letterpress and I Love Stationery. My most recent book, Little Book of Bookmaking, was released in 2014 by Jacqui Small (UK), while my next book, Handmade for Baby, will be released in early 2015. A full catalogue can be found here.

Together with my writing I have spent the last ten years working as a trends and creative insights researcher carrying out research in categories as wide ranging as technology, beauty,  luxury, travel, Gen Y & Millennials.
