We’ve been banging the drum for the graphics side of the London Design Festival throughout the week and today’s focus is on two of the most exciting offerings. Listen below to Graham McCallum of Kemistry Gallery talking about the jaw-dropping Milton Glaser and Seymour Chwast show and illustrator Rob Hunter talks past, present and future.
Opening tonight at east London’s Kemistry Gallery, Seymour & Milton brings together the posters of the two iconic designers from their days when they worked together as Push Pin Studio. It’s an amazing collection of great-looking graphics with something to say and in an extra thrill, visitors to Kemistry can see the pair’s sketchbooks, giving an amazing insight into two such colossal talents. The show runs until November 16.
Meanwhile also tonight, illustrator Rob Hunter is at NoBrow talking bout his latest book Map of Days a brilliantly surreal exploration of the secret world of grandfather clocks.
