Design, getting form and function to fuse in a palatable way, overarches everything we create.
Logo design is an intriguing part of the 'art for print' spectrum...stripping a complex business operation down to a distinctive cypher. It's good therapy for someone like me who usually has several ideas simultaneously competing for centre stage. It's the most minimalist area I've dealt with whereas The Smith Family Home, a commission that enveloped me thirty-five years ago - through necessity - is the most complex, (note the lack of past tense! ).
Over the years I've applied my - slightly bloodshot - design eye to a wide range of projects: books and posters, furniture, buildings, clothing, theatrical costumes and sets, expos, campaigns an atmospheres - you name it. But the most taxing assignment, one where I continually tinker with the practicality/ aesthetics mix is - my lifestyle.
