    Alex Fowkes: Sony Music Timeline

Graphic Design: We can't get enough of typographic talent Alex Fowkes

Posted by Rob Alderson,

The great thing about this job (apart from all the laughs) is that you can stumble across great content when you’re not really looking. So it was this weekend when I picked up a copy of the London Comedy Film Festival (LOCO) programme and was immediately drawn to the lovely illustrative typography which occurred throughout. It’s the work of Alex Fowkes, who I recognised when I got to his portfolio from the sublime typographic mural he did for Sony Music last year charting the label’s history. There’s so much to enjoy on his site though – from a bowling alley identity to publications, album artwork, T-Shirts and even a label for a rum bottle; Alex is a master at creating technically excellent visuals which crackle with personality but don’t ever feel forced in their fun-seeking.
