Legendary British illustrator and author Marion Deuchars publishes beautifully illustrated children’s books and has created her own globally recognised style of hand lettering.
Graduating with a distinction from the Royal College of Art in 1981, Marion went on to co-form an art and design studio. Her output has seen projects that span across corporate literature, publishing, editorial, packaging, advertising, web, brand development, craft and interior design. Marion’s work with major design and advertising agencies include commercial clients Royal Mail Stamps, Carluccios and the Imperial War Museum, resulting in gold and silver awards at the Art Director’s Club New York and three D&AD pencils.
Her thought-provoking talk at Here 2014 questioned why children are discouraged from drawing after primary school, encouraging the audience to reconnect with the enjoyment of creating things. “Making art makes you happy.”
