James 'toye' Mclean

A Little About Me

As an artist I use the moniker toye or toyesm, which is a play on the term toy.
I enjoy exploring whimsical and playful imagery that finds its way onto murals, stickers, drawings, painting, prints and other mediums. My music is influenced by hip hop, electronica and dance music (my music making has been on pause for a long time now).

As a product designer with experience in both UX and visual design, I aim to to create informed designs for people as well as memorable brands for my clients.

I have worked in many different creative roles with startups, creative agencies, non-profits and global companies. Some of these roles have been as co-founder, creative director, UI/UX, product, branding, packaging, marketing, communications, photography, music production, illustration and business development. I enjoyed them all and seek to collaborate with people that inspire me to keep learning more.

Project Overview

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s.

Project Details

When an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
