Alan Fletcher (1931-2006) was described in his obituary in The Guardian as 'the quintessential illustrator and graphic designer, a man uniquely responsible for defining British graphic design with his witty and highly individual approach from the late 1950s onwards'. His international design reputation was reflected by his commissions from major corporations and cultural institutions around the world. In 2002, England & Co held a one-man exhibition: Visual Observations by Alan Fletcher. The Design Museum in London held an exhibition of his life's work in 2006-07, which then toured to Japan in 2008 before returning to London to Pitshangar Manor Gallery in 2008-09.
An archive selection of works from Alan Fletcher's exhibition at England & Co will be added soon to these pages as a tribute to an artist who made design 'a way of life'.
