Tom Eckersley

This month's showcase from the Archives Hub is on designer Tom Eckersley.
Eckersley (1914-1995) was one of the foremost graphic designers of the twentieth century working in the UK. His works employ minimal text, instead transmitting their message by pared-down graphic elements and bold blocks of colour. Eckersley's career spanned from the 1930s until the 1990s, during which time he worked for a huge range of employees from London Transport, Gillette and Guinness to Crisis, World Wide Fund for Nature and the Inner London Education Authority.
