That’s Nice: Kemistry Gallery typographic installation by Anthony Burrill
Graphic artist, print-maker and designer Anthony Burrill is known for his persuasive, snappy style of communication. His work is held in the permanent collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, New York and has been exhibited in galleries around the world including The Barbican, The Walker Art Centre and The Graphic Design Museum, Breda.
The type driven installation featured here ‘Saying the most, with the least’ at the Kemistry Gallery in London, was created off the back of a six day course organized by Mesa & Cadeira. A course attended by 12 local designers, writers and art directors, in São Paulo, Brazil. They were challenged with the task of exploring how best to communicate the most, with the least number of words. A battle every visual communicator struggles with daily but something that Anthony has mastered during his 20 year career working across a range of media, for clients like Wallpaper, London Underground, Colette in Paris, and many others.
The group worked together on a simple brief:
To produce a collection of phrases that best expressed their individual life philosophy. The result was displayed as a large scale installation inspired by vernacular street typography found in the city.
