Manchester-based creative Joe Stratton epitomises current graphic design trends. That is, his portfolio – which abounds with wavy lines, internet-sourced imagery and manipulated type – tends towards fine art (why are young designers so scared of designing sweetener packaging?). But Stratton instead displays compositional nous, a keen visual eye and technical finesse. And combine this with the fact he seems to be working mainly for clients in music – an industry dependent on its ability to reflect contemporary fashions – and you can conclude Stratton’s pretty much nailing it.
