Pete Rossi is a graphic designer, visual artist and general maker of things. After working for several renowned studios in the UK and Europe, he’s also one of the 50 winners to receive the prestigious Art Directors Club Young Gun Award Browsing through Pete’s latest graphic work for the artist George Wyllie’s first major retrospective offers insight into his talent for design. In Pursuit of the Question Mark is running until February at the Mitchell, Glasgow with an identity that is closely aligned to the artists beliefs and process. Pete has therefore used a robust, bold typeface and materials to match, creating a stunning catalogue touched off nicely with a bespoke hand stamp.
Great design embodies a brief’s targets, moulding a creative process and communicating to a specific audience. Pete certainly doesn’t disappoint on this, designing a beautifully put together object worthy of any room, and the prolific artist George Wyllie himself.
