Layni Nolan-Gray

Branding, Illustration, Advertising, Digital, Typography

Hey, I'm Layni. I am a Perth based creative. I am also a weird crap collector, a cat enthusiast and a hummus consumer- although that doesn’t seem relevant right now.

I have a passion for logo design and branding although give me any design project and I’ll be smiling. I have a clean, playful and often quirky design style and I like to challenge the norm. I’m not your average designer.

What inspired you to become a graphic designer?
Even as a child design was my biggest hobby (even if I didn't quite know that what I was doing was called design). I would spend hours on Powerpoint and MS paint creating posters for my favourite books and movies only to annoy my family and friends by showing them off.

What are your favourite typefaces?
Gill Sans is a beautiful and understated typeface that I find myself gravitating towards often. You can also never go wrong with Gotham.

How would you describe your style?
Clean and playful. Often quirky.

What else are you interested in outside graphic design?
I am a collector. Whether that means I collect random, creepy porcelain dolls from the thrift store or beautiful vintage literacy depends on the day and my mood. I am also a cat enthusiast.

There are two types of people in the world. What are the two types?
People who will boogie with me at the grocery store and people who get embarrassed of me boogieing at the grocery store.
