Talks

Over the last ten years Fraser Muggeridge has built a reputation as one of the most interesting graphic designers working today. He employs an elegantly pared-down aesthetic in his collaborations with artists, writers and cultural institutions, allowing images and text to sustain their own intent and impact.

Here Muggeridge discusses his approach to this work and the role typography can play within a contemporary art context.
