I write novels and books that challenge standards of life and humanity, and inspire better business. I am a 30-year graphic designer, type designer, creative director, copywriter, brand development specialist, and strategist. I love riding bicycles, reading, and connecting over a deep dark coffee.

Now, I’m running Train of Thought, writing a novel, launching a type foundry.

P.S. If you are an independent writer looking to give your work a greater chance of success, check out my special projects site, Hobkirk Design – book and publication design.
