A South African born designer living in the United Kingdom with my beautiful wife. I’ve released several well known icon projects1 alongside other open source design helpers2, taught a successful Skillshare3 course and was interviewed by The Industry4 a little while back.

Currently at Shopify, doing what I can to make commerce better for everyone.

Find me on Twitter, Instagram, Dribbble & GitHub.
