Alan Fletcher — 50 years of graphic work (and play)

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

One of the most influential figures in British graphic design, Alan Fletcher co-founded Fletcher/Forbes/Gill in the 1960s and Pentagram in the 1970s. He created iconic brand identities for clients such as Pirelli and the V&A and transformed book design in his role as consultant art editor to Phaidon Press with his spirited, witty and very personal style. To mark the donation of the Fletcher archive to its collection, the Design Museum presents his first retrospective including his commercial work for Penguin, Reuters and Shell, alongside more personal projects in lettering, collage and illustration.

The Design Museum was very saddened by the news of the death of Alan Fletcher on 21 September 2006. Alan Fletcher had very generously donated his archive to the museum and was very much involved in the planning of this retrospective exhibition. Alan Fletcher: fifty years of graphic work (and play) celebrates the remarkable life and work of this influential figure of British graphic design.

This retrospective of Fletcher's amazing work will end on the 18 February, so do remember to make a trip down The Design Museum before it ends! Also worth visiting is the 'Most Beautiful Swiss Book 2005' exhibition, an exhibition displaying the 32 titles of the short-listed works for the Swiss Federal Office of Culture'a annual award 2005.

The London International Mime Festival

The London International Mime Festival (LIMF) is the capital's annual season of boundary-breaking, contemporary visual theatre, incorporating physical performance, circus arts, puppetry and live art.

For nearly three decades, the London International Mime Festival have been contradicting and extending expectations of what mime can be. Mime is no longer dread images of pale painted clowns trying to extricate themselves from imaginary boxes.

Seeing is believing. Mine is dubbed as "Theatre with brains".
