The use of white spaces is key to aesthetic composition.    Image One                                   …

How important is Typography within your composition?

I often think that Typography is overlooked in print and digital artwork. For me it is the je ne sais quoi! It will either make or break the image, more often or not probably breaking it. I believe that some people don’t think of typography as an important part of designing or an art form. “It’s just a font, we have loads, and they look so similar!” (I hear you gasp designers) At the risk of boring those said believers I will ask one question: Do you realise how much …

My main specialism is graphic design but I love photography and who can complain when your job for the day is to visit a kennels and let your inner child run free and wild?

However, the dogs were so excitable that a run round the field was needed in a bid to tire them out. Running and playing …
