Hello!

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

Who are you?

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.

  • A Design Society exhibition piece, based on initials. My piece is highly complex... or just based on the pattern of my favourite jumper. 
Printed on the always beautiful @gfsmithpapers 😍

  • Letraset! It's great appreciating the skill and talent that went into old-school graphic design before desktop publishing and digital type. When it comes to kerning and spacing, it's the most brutal education I can think of!⠀

  • A rough mandala doodle (really rough; it’s the first one I’ve ever done...) #mandala #drawing #inktober #doodle #doodling #geometric #procreate #mandalastyle #beautiful_mandalas
  • We needed superhero names and catchphrases for a quick type warmup.

Can I say 'Hello'?

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