Self praise

Over the course of his career, Paul has been at the helm of industry-leading projects for companies like Google, Red Bull and Morgan Stanley. An advocate for creating useful things 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 ISTD, 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 The Drum. He is the co-founder of the satirical industry website Adloids, speaker and member of several jury panels including the 100 Design Archive, International Society of Typographic Designers and Awwwards. He lives in Pasadena with his wife Nora and a very stubborn basset hound.
