I have been in the graphic design industry for fifty seven years beginning in an art studio in Sydney in 1961 as a junior commercial artist. I attended college three nights a week while working through the day learning studio skills and carrying out the chores associated with my position.
From there I concentrated on my main interest of lettering and also became very interested in packaging and corporate identity design. A two year interval as a National Serviceman in the Australian Military Forces brought a temporary halt to my career and on completion I took up where I had left off and held positions as senior designer, art director and creative director. Awards for packaging design were reward for hard work.
In 2005 I decided to pursue my love of lettering and typography full time specialising in lettering, logo and brandmark design. This has proved most successful doing work across the Australian states of New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia and Queensland. International commissions have come from Switzerland, England, Ireland, United States, Singapore and New Zealand. I have work included in packaging and typography awards from Australia. I also have fonts available at MyFonts under Bean & Morris.
