How are you creative in your daily life? Being a very project-focussed person by nature, I'm often frustrated by need to really nail any one creative pursuit at a last week seemed to be about learning about letterpress, next week I'm sharpening up my CS5 skills. And it was vintage Vogue reproductions prior to that.

What are you most curious about?
What makes people tick.

What is your most prized possession?
I recently stumbled across (and promptly grabbed, well, paid for that is) a set of pretty lovely 1960 'Home' Magazines. It boasts brand new types of linoleum, appliances and project homes from the time. An absolute treasure trove.

What is your favourite letter of the alphabet and why?
A little biased, but I do find a good serif capital A to be pretty satisfying. It seems quite intent on letting you know that there's only really one for it to be properly formed and therefore legible.

What is your favourite colour?
Grey. Yes, gunmetal. Cliched but true.

What is your preferred creative tool?
A close call between my hands and my eyes. When limited by time (and/or small people), I sometimes Samantha nose-twitch an idea until I can get my hands on the project in real life!
