Meet the Maker: Ian 'SWIFTY' Swift

Thursday, March 16, 2017

Even if you have never heard of Swifty you will probably have seen or even owned a piece of his artwork. In the late 80s he was plucked straight from art school in Manchester by Neville Brody to work on The Face  - the most influential magazine for music and graphic design. He has worked for record labels like Gilles Peterson's Talking Loud and James Lavelle's Mo Wax, designed TV titles such as Smack the Pony and Peep Show, was the art director of Straight No Chaser magazine, designs Fonts, club night flyers, T-shirt designs and skateboards. 

Swifty's is a very hands on graphic designer - equally at home with a Rotring pen and a stack of paper to designing in Photoshop. To create his iconic artworks he mixes up to the minute design tools with lo-fi production techniques.
