It’s me Simon, I create fonts for a living.
I wanted to be a fighter pilot when I grew up, but I found myself trapped in the body of a designer. So I did the next best thing and became a type creator—it’s a different type of high and I love it.
Type is everywhere, I always had a fascination with it. Even at school, I did a stint at sign writers, for ages I kept telling people, see that sign. I did that.
Now that I’m older and a little bit wiser I still get a kick out of saying “I did that”.
I’ve worked with companies like King, Warner Brothers, Fox entertainment, and Disney plus worked on some massive campaigns for The Hobbit, Lord of Rings and Paddington to name just a few.
I’ve spent over 20 years working in the design industry but got tired of the rat race. So I stopped doing things I didn’t want to do—and started doing things that did want to do.
More creative things. Things that I cared about.
That led me to, amongst other things typography. I decided to start my own company—better late than never.
I create everything from custom fonts for games and apps to ready to buy fonts for designers. I also run a successful shop selling creative assets, designs, and photography.
Got a project? I am currently available for hire.
