I have had a bit of a slow start in my contributions to this Group. But here is Warren Street on the Victoria line, originally named Euston Road when it opened in 1907 on the Charing Cross, Euston and Hampstead Railway (CCE&HR) line, with the Victoria line being added in 1967.

 

What I've managed to include in this shot is the Warren Street 'warren', ie 'maze' mosaic by Alan Fletcher, designed as a visual pun on the station name. It was intended to amuse for the duratiion of the average 3 minute wait that passengers have for the next train!

Cover from the 1963 book "Graphic design: visual comparisons" (shown here is a reprint from 1966) by Alan Fletcher, Colin Forbes, and Bob Gill. In the sixties their firm was called Fletcher, Forbes, and Gill - which would later become the famous design international firm Pentagram. The book runs over 90 pages and is a great survey of conceptual graphic design.

About the Event

 

Alan Fletcher is one of the most influential figures in post-war British graphic design. As a founding partner of Pentagram, he helped to establish a model that combined commercial partnership with creative independence. He developed some of the most memorable graphic schemes of the era, notably the identities of Reuters and the Victoria & Albert Museum, and made his mark on book design as creative director of Phaidon.

 

This talk is based around Fletcher’s largely unknown series of books Monographica, and hopes to give some context to their creation whilst at the same time offering an overview of Fletcher’s fifty-year career.

 

In 2010, tonight’s speaker Daniel Chehade was approached by Raffaella Fletcher, daughter of Alan Fletcher, to help set up Fletcher Studio, which was established to develop her father’s archive and continue to exhibit and publish new work. Daniel had studied Graphic Design and Typography at the London College of Communication and then gone on to work for three years at John Morgan studio. Whilst continuing to work for Fletcher Studio and on his own design projects for cultural clients, he is now also a visiting lecturer at the University of Hertfordshire.

Such a great book, it makes you think about things a completely different way. I was lucky enough to hear him talk at three lectures. Without a doubt, the man was a genius.
