About Alan Fletcher

Alan Fletcher belonged to that elite international group of designers who transcended the conventional boundaries of their craft. In a long and distinguished career he has been associated with some of the most progressive patrons of modern design, including Reuters, Lloyds of London, IBM, Herman miller, Olivetti, Pirelli, Fortune and Domus magazines. He has tackled every facet of design with a style and purpose that have marked him out as one of the most admired designers of his generation. There is perhaps nobody else who inhabited the world of ideas, wit and ambiguity in graphic design in quite the same way. Born in Kenya in 1931, he survived the wartime Blitz in London, and embarked on a first career as a student - at Hammersmith, the Central School, the Royal College of Art and finally Yale University. He then worked in the United States and Italy, and on returning to London he helped form the now legendary design consultancy Fletcher Forbes Gill. In 1962 he was a founder member of the design group Pentagram, with whom he has stayed for 20 years. He then worked independently from his own studio in London, and was consultant Art Director to Phaidon Press. His books Beware Wet Paint: the Designs of Alan Fletcher (1996) and The Art of Looking Sideways (2001) are both published by Phaidon.
