Classic 1970’s typography & graphic design

Here is a great example of classic 1970’s typography and graphic design. It was designed by my first boss, Barrie Banks, who sadly died recently (aged 85). It shows his home address in Kent, but the studio was at 25 Beak Street, London W1 (Beak Street runs along the bottom of Carnaby Steet) and was right in the thick of the London advertising scene. I was only there for one year, but I enjoyed my first job enormously and learned a lot from Barrie and his ‘boys’ – Adrian, Marco, and Matt.

Work started to come through from an earlier employee, Paul Clarke, as he moved to Conran. I met him there and started an exciting time of assisting with many new clients. This led to spells working at Carlton Studios and Benchmark, with eventually Redbird being started where I worked for a number of years. But, it all started thanks to Barrie Banks, for all of us.
