Above, page 98 of the Graphic Design: Now in Production catalogue featuring Burrill’s posters.
Anthony Burrill is a graphic designer living and working on the Isle of Oxney in England. He designs and prints posters that combine bold typography and strong color with a witty use of language. “Work Hard and Be Nice to People” sounds like a sensible motto, while “Oil & Water Do Not Mix,” which was screenprinted with spilled oil from the Gulf of Mexico disaster, delivers a well-deserved admonition. Burrill’s posters demonstrate a keen interest in printmaking processes such as woodblock and silkscreening. His unique approach translates well to other media, including collaborations with filmmakers and musicians on moving-image work and installations for Colette in Paris and the Design Museum in London, among others. His work has been exhibited in England, the Netherlands, France, Italy, and now in the United States in our exhibition.
POSTSCRIPT: Burrill conceives a new poster during email correspondence with Walker staff:
i’m happy that you are happy – wait a minute, that sounds like an idea for another poster!
