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 'telephone picture' inspired by László Moholy-Nagy. I partnered up with someone and created a grid/matrix in Adobe Illustrator. I then followed the text-only instructions to produce a poster. Amazingly, I wasn't too far off!⠀
