Billy Sweeney is an award-winning American graphic designer living in London. His minimal aesthetic and meticulous nature drive him to create functional and elegant work. He is a classically trained designer, who holds a Bachelor of Science in Graphic Design from Arizona State University. Billy is currently the Head of Design at Thread, was previously a Design Lead at Squarespace, and has been commissioned by a variety of clients. You can find him above his sketchbook, behind his computer, at the mercy of coffee, snowboarding, rock climbing, camping, hiking, guitar playing, or most likely, sleeping.
