“Typography is my passion”
– Mark Boulton
These were his words, when asked about typeface.
Mark Boulton is a very popular name in design community. He has been in this industry since 1997. He owns a design studio called Mark Boulton Design & did a good job with many big & small organizations like De Standaard, Drupal, ESPN, Coolspotters and British Energy.
There are few strong reasons to suggest Mark’s name to my company, like
- Well known graphic designer as I mentioned earlier.
- In news website or we can say a site which contains a plethora of content mixed with variety & vitality, typography is the most important design element and mark boulton has 1st class honors degree at Portsmouth University in Typographic Design. So this is also a good reason for choosing Mark over others.
- He is very good in grid designing. In a content based website grid designing performs a very important role in arranging content. Mark boulton is also writing a book about Grid designing named Designing Grid Systems for the Web.
- We were searching for someone who has experience of designing news website. Mark Boulton has designed some big news websites like De Standaard, Moster & Critics, Garcia Media.
I think these are enough reason for choosing Mark for our site .
