There’s nothing more inspiring than surfing the internet and seeing what other artists are creating, and we encourage you to do so.

He now runs M J Faint Design Co in Bath, where he continues as an art editor for a film/TV magazine as well as producing illustrations, logos and infographics for a number of clients. My dad is a very creative guy, and that definitely rubbed off on me,” says Marcus Faint, who runs M J Faint Design Co. “I think the moment I realised I wanted to make design my career was while undertaking a magazine design module at university. That’s when I thought, this is something I could see myself doing day-in, day-out.” That’s also when Marcus discovered Photoshop, and since then he’s worked as a designer and art editor on magazines, before…
