I am a research based designer with a passion for type design and applied typography. With concept always at the core, my work explores typography's potential to visually convey meaning beyond the words it primarily serves. My approach to design is hands on and collaborative, where mistakes and conversation shape success. Also proactive in design writing and criticism, it is in my nature to initiate debate and challenge the viewer's perspective through design.

Eager to learn outside of my academic comfort zone, I have already worked for a variety of design studios such as Pentagram in London, Cloudfactory in Amsterdam and Artworklove in Paris.


Good Girl Typeface

Good Girl is a display typeface designed in reaction to the underrepresentation of women in the type design industry. Available in three weights from regular to extra-condensed, Good Girl addresses the issue of female visibility within the field by exploring the occupation of space both in typographic form and political expression.

Decoding Type
