Hi I'm Johnny Le and I'm a graphic designer, photographer and visual communicator from Sydney, Australia.
Anthologie Design is a collection of my work, which is bold, simple and clean with a touch of tactility. I'm always open to all creative and design opportunities and would love to hear about your next project!
Archonic Magazine is a self-initiated quarterly publication that explores themes in architecture, art and design. Launched in December 2014, it features and showcases the creative talent of emerging artists, designers, architects, writers and thinkers, both local and abroad. The publication allowed me to experiment with branding, layout, typography, art direction and photography, as well as gain experience into designing for both digital and large-scale offset printing processes.
The publication is a part of Project Archonic, a growing community of creatives founded by Shuang West.
Touch Type is a series of 26 tactile letterforms that have been crafted from different materials and techniques. The series is an exploration into materiality and the processes of creating tangible type to make us realise that tactility is an important part of communication. As a DIY-er and overall hands on person, I believe that touch is not only a vital part of how we engage with the world around us, but can also evoke powerful memories and experiences.
The project includes 26 handcrafted letterforms, a behind the scenes video, and a guidebook that shows the process of making each letter.

In a dark garage in suburban Sydney, Tony works away night and day on fixing sewing machines for the city's schools, fashion designers, alteration stores and sewing hobbyists. This is a short documentary on the life of Tony, who has been in the industry for over 30 years. It reveals his thoughts on his work, the challenges he faces and his thoughts on the Australian textile industry as a whole.
