The day after the horrendous Manchester Arena attack, Tony Walsh read his now famous poem 'This Is The Place' at a vigil outside the town hall. Now, over 60 Manchester creatives have collaborated, each taking a line from the poem to inspire unique pieces of art, illustration, design and photography. Their work is now presented in this one-of-a-kind book with proceeds going to charitable causes.
The book design is the work of Glorious Creative. The line I illustrated is 'In the face of a challenge we always stand tall.
'In the face of a challenge we always stand tall'
The simple typographic treatment gets to the core of the message in a quick and visual way for use on outdoor media where it sit's out of context from the rest of the poem.
Continuing the theme of putting art in the public space I contacted Primesight Outdoor Media to discuss publishing my design aptly at the mouth of the Mancunian Way on one of their digital screens. They were more than happy to get involved.
