My work is featured in a new book on Color by Eddie Opara

I am featured in a new book written co-authored by Pentagram’s Eddie Opara and John Cantwell. In the book I’m interviewed about my work, and in particulay the use of colour in news. I talk about the rebrand of ITV News (which I work on with the good people at Lambie Nairn) and the process and challenges of using colour in Television News graphics. The book also features case studies by Michael Beirut, Paula Scher, Stefan Sagmeister, UVAs Matt Pyke and Spin’s Tony Brook. It is really great for our work to be recognised amongst other noted designers.

The clock was inspired by a project to create an object that records time in an unusual way and, in light of the increasing role it plays in people lives, Greig decided to incorporate social media.

NYT: Design Gets More Diverse

Designers of color are benefiting from these changes, not least because design is largely a meritocratic profession. It is tough for everyone, especially at the top. No designer secures a sought-after job like Mr. Boateng’s, or coveted international commissions like Mr. Burks’s, without talent, courage, charisma and determination, but they do tend to be judged on performance.
