About me

Craig Black is a Scottish born graphic designer, lettering artist and typographer.

Having spent the first few years of his career in leading design agencies gaining experience in print to motion and everything in-between, he currently runs his own design studio in Glasgow and London, United Kingdom.

Known for his bespoke and innovative typographic illustrations, visual identities, packaging and installations. His strengths lie in his ability to cross disciplines without the effects of a fixed personal style. This versatility has meant he's been lucky enough to work on a varied mix of projects with local and international clients of all business backgrounds.

Typography is just the starting point of Craig's work. He can handle any type of brief and works just as well on projects with strong constraints or complete creative freedom. He believes in creating engaging, modern and precise visuals whilst maintaining originality in all of his work.
