Graphic design: “When I start a design process that should be three dimensional, I often start by picking the font; if I get stuck in three dimensions, I will go often go back to two. I was given a very strict brief by Askul (a Japanese stationery supplier) to design a wall clock, so I used graphics to minimize the restriction. The brief was ‘happy’ which was a paradox considering I designed it during the first two weeks I arrived in Dubai, when I was sitting in a hotel, on my own, probably quite unhappy!”
