Alan Fletcher


I love this calendar - the description said that the printer had to wear sunglasses and described it as "the most vulgar thing he'd ever seen". I have a soft spot for Cooper Sans (geek!) so I think May is my favourite (middle left, diagonal stripes). Love January and June too. And neon's so this season too! Apparently August was printed onto silk scarves that were dropped from a light aircraft onto a beach in Italy.

It's so sad that googling his name now brings a page of obituaries, rather than a page of inspiring and exciting work, like
this, these, this, and this.

What if...

Lots of good ideas by London 'young creative team' David and Pheobe. And not just good ideas but pretty ones too. I like the David Shrigley-style typography. Also reminds me a bit of Kate's daily purchase drawings.

see lots more at What if...
