Introduction

My name is Simon Clavey and I'm a designer from the UK. My curiosity for how objects function, and why they function the way they do is why I'm in this industry. My passion for looking deeper into how objects work, and why they exist in the medium they do, is why the process of design will always capture my curiosity. The process of designing, even the smallest object, has shaped the way we all live our lives.

I would primarily label myself as a designer but over the years and giving into my curiosity I have become quite proficient in the front-end technologies to build/prototype. My main interests in the design industry today are most definately Typography and Interaction design.
