Alan Fletcher at the Design Museum




Yesterday I took a stroll on the south bank and I first went to the Design Museum to see the exhibition of Alan Fletcher -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. Alan Fletcher died on 21st of September 2006. He donated his archive to the museum and before his death he was very much involved in the planning of this retrospective exhibition.
