Powerful use of fonts can turn invites into simplistic masterpieces. These beauties for a Byron Bay wedding are so impactful because they are so minimalist and let the details speak for themselves. Beautiful choice!

How did your creative journey start?
Mine started when my art teacher advised me to go to art school after finishing my GCSE’s. London College Of Printing to be precise. I was like “mmmm not sure 🤔 if art is for me”. I decided to do my A-levels in Media Studies, Art & Design and English Literature @sfx6thform
which was great. I discovered my love for media studies and literature. I eventually went to @universityofarts
Where I did my foundation in graphics, hnd in typography, industry year out and then my final year of my degree was in advertising. It was probably the longest route to get my degree but the best for me. I discovered and learnt so much along the way.
I also had the best tutors. I would have to say Dave Dabner who run the HND was my favourite. He absolutely loved his craft and it showed. Literally I remember him swearing at us during our first day in class. He made us hand render all our work before getting on our Mac. Also my dissertation teacher who allowed me to write my dissertation on Ali G, identity and language. It was fun while it lasted...fond memories.

The charming and enhancing Sterling Script was cleaning in progress for an upcoming workshop on letterpress. Sterling Script was developed due to high demand for copper plate's fonts around 1950’s, from the origin Stephenson Blake foundry, England. The Canada Type foundry has revised a digital format of the fount which can be seen in next slides. #letterpress #canadatypefoundry #canadatype #stephensonblake #typefoundry #copperplate
After I moved back, I use to contemplate as what exactly to do! In my subconscious, I really wanted to bring letterpress back in vogue and dreamt of having a really cool letterpress studio. But reality hit, this printing process was obsolete! and with that my dream changed. (Haha). But during my weekends I would go and visit these old press and checkout if there was any machine I could buy and salvage it. But they all were so EXPENSIVE, that I decided to build my own machine. I worked on the idea for couple of months, and with the help of my local carpenter (who is a genius, by the way) I built my own little press! .

Do you ever wonder what would it be like to be born in a different era?
If I could chose, I would love to revisit the Gutenberg era, when letterpress printing was just invented.
P.S. This is me, in 2009. Clearly super amused by my own creativity. This was when we were visiting a letterpress unit, close to Arlington I think. And boy! This day, really changed my life. I fell in love! the studio, the ink, the machine, everything.
Also behind me is : Khaled, my gorgeous best friend! (The tall one) And a supremely talented designer, whose work definitely provokes a lot of opinion! .
