My good friend Simon Walker was featured on Grain Edit this morning, and it couldn’t be more deserving credit! He has honed his hand typography, logo, and illustration skills furiously over the past years, and uses every new commercial and personal project to evolve his aesthetic. Recently, he has been developing new typefaces (such as Matchbook) and exploring typographic branding.

I had the privilege of working alongside Simon back in 2009, and I witnessed his talent first hand. He’s got real gumption: new ideas *sometime* start with a rough hand sketch, but always quickly evolve on screen from his fast mouse-clickin’ chops. On top of it all, he’s a really swell guy! Buy him a craft beer if you meet him in person, and you’ll learn something about fonts and hops.
