My Bio

In Latin, Artifex means ‘an artist, builder or maker of things’ or ‘ingenious and artistic’, which, together with the idea of a forge as a workshop, really sums up what I want to do – to create practical, functional and beautiful design and illustration tools (and ‘art effects’)!

My name is Jeremy Child, and I launched the Artifex Forge in 2014. I have been developing an online presence in my spare time since 2012 while working as a senior illustration designer in the novelty children’s book industry. This gave me great experience in concept development and the practical use of the Adobe suite, which means that you can be sure of functional and original products designed for the busy designer or graphic illustrator! In 2014, my wife began a three-year research project investigating Fairtrade wine, which involved a lot of overseas traveling and was the perfect opportunity to freelance full-time. I can work anywhere in the world, which has also proved helpful in giving me new ideas and source material! I love the challenge of turning a traditional medium into a versatile digital product and enjoy creating tools to help speed up and improve people’s designs.
