Catherine Hyland

I first met Catherine in 2010 when I was a junior designer at Wallpaper* magazine and she was an intern on the photo desk. Little did I know that she was on the verge of becoming one of the most wonderful landscape photographers of our generation. Her stunning large-format photographs document some of the world’s most interesting places, often focussing on humanity’s futile attempts to tame nature.

Catherine asked me to design her a new portfolio website at the end of 2020. We quickly established that the site should be typographically-led; a bold statement for an image-making artist. The site has a strong graphic sensibility, and is built in such a way that Catherine can control its look by switching between 4 different typefaces and unlimited colour combinations.
