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.

  • Making a 'custom' typeface from set shapes; a design manifesto. Making a 'y' out of circles is hard.⠀

  • I’m moving to my fancy student flat soon, so expect some slower posts! This is ‘Telephone Line’, a narrative that I produced during my Art Foundation. It was based on the beautiful style of @nobrowpress .⠀

Can I say 'Hello'?

Ooh, please do. I’ve spent ages on my email signature.
