Who is hexadecimal?

Cliff Gurney locked onto the digital world at an early age, developing his love of technology into a passion for design. A year as a junior designer at Studio Moso introduced him to professional coding standards and the fine details of design management. In 2010, Cliff established his own web design studio producing websites and printed collateral for start-up businesses. He has a strong allegiance to the values and formal properties of design modernism, especially the International Typographic Style, producing work that is abstract, reductive and lucid. Cliff holds an Honours degree in Communication Design from Swinburne University of Technology.
