Marriages are made in Heaven

A session at Illustration: Making Pictures

  • Brian Webb

Friday 19th October, 2012

11:00am to 11:30am (GMT)

Brian Webb is envious of the time when artist/illustrator/designers weren't pigeon holed. He likes talking to and working with artists and illustrators and will talk about recent collaborations.

Brian Webb went to college with the intention of becoming an illustrator. He soon became seduced by all the stuff around his drawings, became a designer and hasn't looked back. His work includes postage stamp design for the Royal Mail and posters for London Transport. He has co-written and designed more than a dozen books on British designer/artists in the Design series including Edward Bawden and Eric Ravilious; Paul and John Nash; McKnight Kauffer; Lovat Fraser; David Gentleman and Peter Blake. He is also a co-author and designer of Edward Bawden's London recently published by the V&A.

Brian Webb is a Visiting Professor at the University of the Arts, and past President of the Chartered Society of Designers. His work is in many international collections including the V&A and Museum of Modern Art. He has won some awards.
