Eckersley exhibition opens in London
January 14, 2014 1 Comment
Taking cues from the Modernist movement, Eckersley created simple yet clever bold designs which influenced generations of graphic designers.
The poster artist produced work for London Transport and other public service organisations throughout his sixty-year career.
He also established the UK’s first undergraduate graphic design course at the LCC’s predecessor, the London College of Printing.
This year marks the centenary of his birth and the forty posters on display come from the LCC’s own archive. The tribute runs from the 11th to the 29th January.
Take a look at some of Eckersley’s work here and tell us if you’ll be going along to ‘Tom Eckersley: Master of the Poster’.
