Dougal Binns – Graphic Designer and Illustrator
Dougal grew up in Lismore and spent his youth dreaming of becoming a famous artist, musician AND professional basketball player.
Upon completing High School he thought he’d better put at least one of the dreams to action, and after weighing up studying art and graphic design decided on the latter, and got accepted to study a Bachelor of Arts Degree for Graphic Design in Melbourne. After graduating, his first job was working at the Herald Sun newspaper as a designer and illustrator.
The call to travel eventually pulled him to Europe, where he spent a year and a half working at The Independent newspaper in London.
After travelling he returned to his home town and began working with Soren and Jeni from GD Studio, met his future wife and decided to make a family. 12 years later he is still here and enjoying working with the ever diversifying GD Studio.
And he’s still living the dream of playing music and basketball, albeit without the ‘fame’!
