This week’s Featured Artist is the talented Graphic Designer, David Pearson. Well known throughout the industry, David has made himself known for his excellent use of design, often working within typography, book cover design and branding. Based in the London, UK, who graduated from Central Saint Martins in London, Pearson is known for his bold and distinctive style, especially for the well known brand Penguin.
His most recent commission, was that of redesigning five of George Orwell’s novels, which includes the iconic ‘Nineteen Eighty-Four’ book cover, which hides the Author’s Name and the title of the book itself, which links excellently to the theme of censorship throughout the book. Even though this was a big risk to take for the publishers of Penguin, it has paid off as it has made the book a ‘sought after’ item, which everyone, including that of designers, want to own. Along with Nineteen Eighty-Four, Animal Farm, Homage to Catalonia, Politics of the English Language and Down in Out in Paris and London, have all been released and designed by Pearson.
They all have a very different feel to them all, but Animal Farm is another stand out piece from the collection. Pearson has managed to create a new cover for this well known story, and fits both the type and illustration very well together. We also have his other designs on show below, which shows just how good a designer David Pearson is.
