Name
Jack Kimberley

Where are you from?
Birmingham

What do you do?
Graphic design, type design.

Describe your style in three words
Imagine old types from the past but from a different universe, Almost hauntological.... Dystopian Post Present.

What have you been up to?
I’ve just graduated and have just started doing my own stuff. When I was in design education, I found it bizarrely reductive. Since, I’ve got a studio in a disused office building with my friend. It’s about £30 a month and it’s got electricity and heating and that’s about it. So I’ve been holed up in there doing exactly what I wanna do in the days. I have another job in the evening, but I’m happy with this arrangement.

I’ve been doing music posters for a night called Treehouse in London, Leeds, Sheffield and Manchester, among others.

Do you have any down time?
Not really, we work in a night club, all our crew. So we have no life pattern really. There’s no on or off. So we listen to really jacked up music to stay awake.
