    Alan Fletcher is among the most influential figures in British graphic design as a founder of Fletcher/Forbes/Gill in the 1960s and Pentagram in the 1970s. He helped to establish a model of combining commercial partnership with creative independence, developed some of the most memorable graphic schemes of the era, notably the identities of Reuters and the Victoria & Albert Museum, and made his mark on book design as creative director of Phaidon.

    Alan Fletcher: Fifty years of graphic work (and play)

    This was the first time that Manchester and beyond saw such a vast and important retrospective archive celebrating fifty years of the designer’s work (and play). This comprehensive exhibition included original sketches, posters, objects and archive footage spanning Fletcher’s work from his student days at the RCA to the playful and more personal work he created after leaving Pentagram in 1992.

    Felt Tip


    Sea Gallery, London

    Thirty of the most talented designers and illustrators were invited to create an artwork using very simple materials – a sheet of A1 premium paper from GF Smith and a set of Tria Markers from Letraset. The aim was to create an opportunity where designers could step away from their computers and create a piece of work that required them to interact physically with their materials. Alan Fletcher named his poster 'Observations on art'.

    26 Letters: Illuminating the Alphabet


    British Library, London

    In 2004, the writing group 26 and the International Society of Typographic Designers joined forces to explore the DNA of language. Twenty-six business writers were randomly paired with twenty-six graphic designers, given one letter each and asked to create a collaborative work that celebrated, explored, questioned, elucidated or subverted that letter. The resulting exhibition was displayed throughout the British Library as part of the London Design Festival.
