Time can be a tricky concept for creatives – too much of it and it suggests you’re underemployed, too little and it’s a race against the clock to make your difficult deadline. To promote the launch of their new range of watches, Uniform Wares commissioned 12 graphic artists to produce a print inspired by a certain hour that has a significant place in their work.
Thanks to an insane roster of some of our absolute favourites – from Anthony Burrill and Hellovon to Jack Featherstone and James Joyce – the results were really great with most of the participants going off in weird and wonderful directions. There’s also a really excellent animation from Alice Dupree to promote the show which ran in east London during the latter part of last week.
