Aidan is an emerging designer who uses their skills across multiple disciplines to create nuanced and considered design responses. Aidan’s passion for creativity and meticulous attention to detail inform their work; producing outcomes that are thoughtful and highly resolved.
Aidan believes in design as a force for change, seeing the potential in each project to solve problems and work toward better lives for all. Their strong sense of responsibility and their commitment to do work for a greater good motivates them to find purpose in their creative endeavours; driving change through clever design, storytelling, and visual strategy.
Aidan’s multidisciplinary skillset enables him to work across a broad spectrum of projects encompassing print, digital, brand, type, and motion-based outcomes. From careful typesetting to elevating brand content with refined motion design, Aidan’s intricate and methodical approach to his work prioritises careful consideration of detail at every level, which they apply in realising technical design challenges.
Aidan maintains a strong interest in emerging technologies and is always eager to experiment with how new tools and workflows can produce unique and innovative designs. Most recently, he has been experimenting with using variable font technology to explore gender stereotypes in type design.
