Differences between Icon and Logo Design on This is HCD Podcast

10 Apr 2018
A pic of me working in the studio

I’ve worked with Gerry Scullion from Humana many times over the years on different icon projects (Cochlear, MYOB, ZipMoney) so I was delighted to have chat on the This is HCD Podcast about icon and logo design. Sadly, my tendency to like talking, and then some more talking, meant that Aman Braich (Principle designer at Intuit) didn’t get as much time to speak, sorry about that Aman! :(

BBC Outriders

11 Mar 2014

I recently chatted with Jamillah Knowles of the BBC Radio 5Live show Outriders about icons, and the episode ‘Symbols and Signs’, is now available on the BBC Podcasts and Downloads page, or download directly as an mp3.

The episode looks at how Unicode works, emoticons and the power symbol, while I talk about the difference between Logos and Icons, and the challenges of icon metaphors with localisation.


Offscreen issue 5 is here!

16 May 2013

My copy of Offscreen #5 arrived this week and it looks (and smells!) absolutely gorgeous. As always its a great read and I’m dead chuffed at how well “Al Power’s”: photos have come out. Obviously they couldn’t use all of the shots that Al took, so I’ve put up an Offscreen Photoset on Flickr to show the best of the bunch, most of which weren’t published.

I’ll stop banging on about it now, promise.

I’ll leave you with this delightful gif made from outtakes from the shoot, which I shall simply call ‘Bike Dance‘…


Sitepoint Interview

03 Aug 2009

A couple of weeks ago, I recorded an interview with Kevin Yank for the Sitepoint Podcast, part of a new series of interview casts. We had a lovely chat about various topics, such as print designers moving to the web, working for Opera and the new Firefox icon. I always tend to get a bit waffly, giggly and veer of course with interviews, but it sounds like Kevin has done a grand job of editing it into a listenable mp3!

Listen to the interview over at Sitepoint.com, which also has a full transcript.
