After four years designing for agencies throughout Canada and the UK, Hayden has switched his focus to what got him into design in the first place—illustration.

Now, living in Toronto, Hayden teaches online classes to 1000’s of students, works as a freelance illustrator and puts an absurd amount of time into putting happy faces on inanimate objects. And when he isn’t creating art, you can find him practicing parkour, playing board games and burning through many a fantasy novel.

Hayden has been featured on Skillshare, Redbubble, 365 Awesome Designers, Stepping Stones, Student Voices and by the Association of Registered Graphic Designers.
