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.
