Interview with the JamFactory

Gavin Strange

"My name is Gavin Strange and I'm a 26-years-young manchild from Leicester but now living in beautiful Bristol. I work as the Senior Online Designer at Aardman Animations by day, and by night I indulge in my other graphical obsessions, going under the name 'JamFactory' ".

I finally get the chance to interview the one and only Gavin Strange. I asked Gav many moons ago if he would do me the honour of being interviewed by me for the launch of holeycoww, to this day, he kept his word!


Interview with the GingerMonkey

Tom Lane

I'm a graphic designer and illustrator currently living in the UK. After completing my degree in graphic design at the Univeristy of the West of England I was awarded the role of Junior Fellow and joined the faculty for one year. Shortly after, I embarked on a freeelance career and built a network of clients in and around the Bristol area as I carried out my duties at the University. This freelancing lay the foundation for what became Ginger Monkey.
