We chat to Will Schorer from Perth’s Highscore Creative – with clients such as Queens of the Stone Age, Woodram and My Morning Jacket; Highscore Creative has got quite a few notches in their design-belts! With a keen eye for illustration as well as design, Will constantly plays on both elements to constantly better his client’s and his personal work.
Tell us a little about your typography style and how it has evolved over time…
I am still searching for a style really, I don’t think I have a distinct style in both typography or Illustration just yet. One of my goals as a designer is to develop a distinct style, but at the moment my designs are usually based on what the client wants and also what is inspiring me at the time. I’ve always enjoyed calligraphy and vintage typography, so I guess that is where I usually draw inspiration from.
You’ve done work with some bands (Queens of the Stone Age, Xavier Rudd, Miss May I) how does that process differ from other design work?
I like to think my process is the same whether I am working for a small local company or a bigger name from overseas. I think it is important to always put out your best work regardless of the client, having said that there definitely is a pressure associated with doing designs for some of these bigger names because you realise how many people potentially could see your work.
