Patrick Hughes

Gold Award


Young Designer of the Year



It is my true belief that designers like Patrick Hughes come round once in a generation. With a skill set that stretches across typography, brand identity creation, art direction, motion, editorial design and strategy Patrick is a true master of his craft.

At 27 years old Patricks skill level, determination and meticulous attention to detail far outreaches his years of practice. His work contains a sense of calm confidence and maturity that many do not find until the senior years of their careers. Upon graduation from University Patrick was deservingly accredited with the title of MISTD with commendation (highest level achievable) from the international society of type designers.

Since joining Too Gallus as a junior creative his dedication and work ethic has progressed him through the ranks at lightning pace. Patrick has made himself invaluable and indispensable to the studio, throwing his full weight and effort behind every project.

Patricks has an innate ability to remain objective on any project he tackles, creating work not just that he likes but is perfectly befitting the client, whether that be clean and sleek fin-tech identities or light and floral bridal aesthetics.

It is my opinion that Patrick is a one of a kind in the industry, a true prodigy of his craft, and a designer with an incredibly bright future ahead of him.

Reason for nomination

Patrick has been instrumental in the growth of our studio. His work ethic and approach has been transformational and he truly deserves the recognition for his work. Too Gallus has become a top 1% design agency in just 3 short years and it is in no small part down to his contribution. He has supported the studio creatively in many ways as well as enjoying a strong freelance business on the side, creating industry defining work like Pavilion Festival.
