Narcsville: Vice mental health

Work / Graphic Design

Screen-printed and collaged posters and album artwork by Narcsville

Have you seen the mental health series that Vice is running at the moment? It’s brilliant. As well as pulling together witty, intelligent and truly necessary articles by a bunch of great writers, the artistic commissioning is bang on too. One of the artists they asked to create imagery to accompany these pieces – not an easy thing to do, I may add – is a guy who goes by the name of Narcsville.

The London-based designer and illustrator has actually got a massive back-catalogue of stuff that you may recognise but never know who did it, like some really fantastic posters for record labels like Upset the Rhythm, pubs like the Old Blue Last, and bands like The Cribs. As well as doing all this he’s also got a big selection of personal work on his site that he’s just boshed out for fun, which is always a good sign. Three cheers for someone who’s still designing by actually getting their hands dirty and knowing their way around some scissors, Pritt Stick and a screen-printing bed.
