What is the favourite aspect about your career?
The challenge. Every 'good' brief should be challenging in order to get the most out of
the skill set of the agency and designer. Afterall, I'm doing a job that decides and dictates
how the world should be visually perceived and how we should communicate this to
the best of our abilities.
Do you have any phobias?
99.9% of current pop music, heights and 'duck lips' selfies.
What is your proudest accomplishment?
Maybe winning a singing contest aboard a cruise ship, singing 'Cliff Richard - we're all going on a Summer Holiday' aged 5. That was a good while ago though. It should really be my pride and joy (my record collection) but I'll say it has to be one of the main reasons that I collected records and became a DJ in the first place; playing alongside my idols, most notably; Derrick Carter....
But maybe, one day, I'll be able to say it is my portfolio. Oh, and the nobel peace prize. One day.
What are three things still left on your bucket list?
Publication of my own book with a gallery to accompany it.
Visiting and seeing as much of the world as possible with my family.
If you could live anywhere, where would you live?
Beach hut on a Croatian island.
What are your guilty pleasures?
Coffee, Flapjacks, 80's pop music.
What is your favourite item of clothing?
One of my many hats. Not sure which.
If you could choose to do anything for a day, what would it be?
Getting cosmic as an Astronaut on a mission to find a new habitable planet to save mankind.
You being the host and choosing anyone; celebrity, non-celebrity, dead or alive; who would
you invite to your ideal dinner party?
Andy Warhol, Jim Morrison, Will Farrell, Bill Murray, Prince, David Bowie, Pablo Escobar,
Kelly Brook, David Lynch, Salvador Dali, El Lissitzky, Hunter S Thompson, Charlie Sheen
and Dougal from The Magic Roundabout.
What is currently playing on your car stereo?
On my way to the studio this morning it was 'Fatback - Backstrokin'.
Your favoured typeface?
Today I'll go for Didot.
I could of gone for Bodoni but this incarnation of the Italian classic has all the quality of Bodoni with a little more. Love those sexy glyphs and ligatures!
