Craig Ward has established himself as one of the most important typography designers on the scene today. Inspired by artists such as Vaughan Oliver and members of the Tomato collective, Ward strips words down and rebuilds them with a gritty and gutsy flare. He believes great design does not depend upon legibility, it’s about ripping pure emotion and energy from a word. Transforming type into something much more than the literal text.
