About me

Photo of Phil Gyford

I live in London, UK.

I make things on the internet; read more about my professional work on my company’s website, Well-Formed.

I run The Diary of Samuel Pepys and occasionally update a couple of Tumblrs: Crazy Walls and Our Incredible Journey. I made an easy-to-read version of the Guardian/Observer.

I also do some acting and have a website for that.

In the past I: learned to be a futurist in Houston, Texas; worked at Wired magazine, Capital Radio and UpMyStreet.com; worked briefly as a modelmaker for animation; attempted to be a freelance illustrator; and studied graphic design and illustration at university in Bristol. I grew up in Witham, Essex.
