About me

Hello! I'm Greg McIndoe - or Headless Greg, whichever you prefer - and I am an illustrator and design writer from Glasgow. I recently graduated with a First Class Degree in Illustration from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in Dundee. My design work is all about abstraction! I enjoy experimenting with both 2D and 3D image making techniques and love nothing more than playing with shapes. Highlights from my final year at art school including writing and illustrating Wilson Strange, a book which explores the connection between mental health and creativity by telling the story of a man who cannot control his brain. I was also thrilled to be shortlisted for the Folio Society's Book Illustration Competition 2020. My work as a design writer focuses on illustration but also covers graphic design, interiors and fashion as well as more personal subjects like mental health and LGBTQ+ topics. Previous publications and companies I have written for include Ohh Deer, Nobrow Press, Inkygoodness, 91 Magazine and Mincho Magazine. I also run The Headless Greg Blog which is housed over on my website. Follow @gregmcindoe and @headlessgreg on Instagram for updates on everything I am currently designing and writing!

Work history


Assistant Editor

  • Freelance
  • Over the 4 years I worked with graphics arts blog Inkgoodness, I progressed from an occasional columnist to Assistant Editor. During this time, I wrote about and connected with some of my favourite creatives including emerging graduate illustrators and well known designers. I produced a series of columns for Inkygoodness including The Colour Edit which examined different artists iconic use of colour and The Artists Wardrobe which connected the world of illustration with fashion. My Art Schooled column - a blog series about life in creative education - also started out on Inkygoodness before moving to my own blog.
