Hello, I am...


A few weeks ago I got an email from Martijn Baudoin, a Dutch designer and filmmaker, who's been creating short, 1-minute videos featuring talented creatives. His series, "Hello, I am..." features tattoo artists, fashion designers, illustrators, etc. Having seen my series Creative Types - Martijn asked me if I wanted to collaborate. Soon we created the first international Hello I am... video, featuring Vic Lee.

Vic is also a designer, but now works as an artist, creating fantastically detailed murals and drawings using his unique 'mock Victoriana' (as he calls it) style.

His designs adorn everything - from the Virgin Atlantic VIP lounge at Los Angeles airport to the walls in the offices of Metro, Marks and Spencer and numerous London-based creative agencies. He's designed a one-off Famous Grouse bottle and box, a gorgeous Brompton bike bag and his own puzzles.

I interviewed and filmed Vic, himself a really friendly chap, in his Clerkenwell office.

Martijn then edited the film together and here is the result:
