ulga is Michael Gills, a freelance graphic designer who loves letters, logo design, monogram design, calligraphy & type design.
I'm a graphic designer based in Ipswich, Suffolk. After more than twenty years working in a typeface studio, publishing house and web design agency, I took the plunge and went freelance. This has enabled me to take on more logo design, calligraphy and font projects.
Although letterforms are my speciality, my experience covers print design, packaging design, signage, digital design (UI, photoshop mockups, HTML, CSS including media queries) and visual identity.
I take pride in the quality of my work: I manipulate, cajole, caress, and sometimes harass layouts, pixels, spaces, shapes and curves regardless of the medium – digital or analogue – until the finished result is spanking hot and tasty.
Every project is approached with the same friendly care and attention – whether it's a small piece of lettering or a full-blown visual identity – I understand the value of building client relationships.
