What inspired you?

[Editorial] Published 2007 in Grafik 150 — a book celebrating inspiration, with contributions from leading designers.

In 1993 I wasn’t a graphic designer. I was a well travelled skateboarder with a bar job. I’d ended a long-term(inal) relationship and was sharing a house with a cluster of hippie friends. Young and single, we existed in and out of each other’s, and other people’s, ‘bits’, and aside from the washing-up, our world was relatively carefree.
