Hello!

I’m Tom Ayling
and I like to make
pretty things.

What pretty things?

Lots of pretty things. I’m studying a Graphic Communication and Typography degree, so I’m working on design, illustration, typography, infographics, UI/UX, and much more!
Have a look at some of my previous projects in my portfolio to get a better idea.

Instagram.

Being a student, I’m always making and trying new things in the world of design.
Check out my Instagram to see what I’ve been up to.

  • Have a peaceful weekend. I'll be spending mine in Berlin 🇩🇪⠀

  • 'Sea Fever' by John Masefield on Fabriano paper, set in Gill Sans and Albertus in letterpress. A gift for @mrscorsedeli , who has recently opened a new café!⠀

  • Happy New Year! January seems like a purple month, or maybe I just like purple too much...⠀

  • It's that bit after Christmas when you get to think about all of the fat you've consumed. Winter walks certainly help. I hope that you've all had a lovely 2018 🎉 ⠀

  • Merry Christmas to family, friends, and followers 🎄
  • Phew! After 6 weeks of making strange experiments, I decided to keep it simple for my reimagined cover of William Golding's 'Lord of the Flies'.⠀
