Sean Freeman selected for ADC Young Guns

Art Directors Club has announced the 50 best and brightest creatives under the age of 30 for the annual Young Guns showcase.  Amongst the pool of excellent talent is our type specialist Sean Freeman.

The interview below is from the ADC site:

A love for words and beautiful images led Sean to explore a harmony of both. After graduating with a First Class Honors in Graphic Design & Advertising, Sean started working as a designer in a few agencies in London while pursuing his own work in the evenings, weekend, holidays and tea-breaks. After receiving his first commission (a tiny headline in a major magazine), one commission quickly turned into two, two to three, until the balance tipped, enabling him to spread his wings and set up his own studio: There Is.

Sean lives in East London under the watchful eye of his 13 year old (slightly fat) French-Canadian cat. He creates award-winning typographic treatments and illustrations for a varied range of clients globally.

What do you fight against constantly in your work?
Photoshop… sometimes I win… sometimes I don’t.

What is the driving force behind the time and effort you spend excelling at your craft?
An obsession with details.

What keeps you going when you work late into the evening?
Sweet wine & groovy tunes.

If you broke your arm, who would you most want to sign your cast?
Barack Obama, and ideally he’d sing a little something while he did it.

From the Jury:
The most exquisite and inventive typography I have seen, presented flawlessly. – Ian Wharton, YG8
