Self praise

During his 15 years as a designer, Paul has been at the helm of industry-leading projects for companies like Google, Red Bull, Morgan Stanley, and Time Inc. An advocate for creating product that people actually need — as opposed to filling the world with more garbage they don't — Paul places a hyper-focus on the user in his work. He has been recognized by Awwwards, the IDI, the Webbys, and other leading design institutions.

In his spare time, Paul writes about the future of design and technology for the likes of Fast Company, AdWeek, and Communication Arts. He is the co-founder of the satirical industry website Adloids, speaker and member of several jury panels including the 100 Irish Design Archive, International Society of Typographic Designers and Awwwards. He lives in Pasadena with his wife Nora and a very stubborn basset hound.
