TORONTO—After freelancing in Canada for two years, British designer Kerrin Hands has hung up his shingle in downtown Toronto as Hands Design.
Former Uncut Magazine art director Kerrin Hands makes Toronto his new home
“I’d heard that Toronto was a vibrant, exciting city with a great design community. I came to visit with my wife and son and we loved it so we took the step of moving here,” says the former art director of London-based music and movie magazine Uncut.
While Hands Design currently operates as a one-man shop, Hands hopes to hire a full-time designer and production manager in the near future.
His Canadian clientele includes Penguin Books, Harper Collins Publishing, Air Miles and Pearson Education.
“Presently we are working on the graphics for The Scream Literary Festival that takes place in Toronto in July,” says Hands. “We are also designing a coffee table book for a well-known interior design TV show. I am also working on a whole range of different book-cover designs for companies around the world.” Contact: www.handsdesign.ca
