Following a successful internship with the Australian design studio Envelope Group, Graham secured a full-time role, working closely with the creative director Ty Bukewitsch. Over a two year period, Graham established himself as the studio’s digital designer, learning to code on the job, and now produces the majority of client websites.
Graham returned to Scotland to further his design education at Edinburgh Napier University. During the four year course, he continued his employment with Envelope Group in a part-time remote role, communicating directly with clients and the studio director.
Over the four-year Graphic Design course, Graham has experimented in new design areas and disciplines, including motion graphics — as well as honing his skills in typography, art-direction and branding. A half-year exchange with Aalto University in Helsinki provided the opportunity to experiment with traditional analogue processes, such as screen-printing and letter-press, as well as with cutting edge creative coding technologies. During the exchange he also undertook a brand management course which delved into the strategic aspects of building brands today.
Graham is particularly interested in typography, brand identities, editorial design and the future of digital design.
