Aus dem Pressetext: I Like It. What Is It? is a collection of unique posters featuring catchy typographic slogans by designer Anthony Burrill. Simply pull out the detachable prints and display the bright statements on your wall. Artfully designed and printed using special colours, these bespoke artworks will brighten up any room or workspace. Burrill’s persuasive and upbeat style of graphic communication will appeal to design lovers from all walks of life. Includes 30 pull-out posters, with details of the stories behind the designs on the back, and a page of witty stickers including “This Way Down” and “Sorry, We’re Open!” Burrill is a great designer because he makes you notice and appreciate truths that would otherwise remain dead and inert. His work has such resonance because its so true: we should all work hard and be nice. Alain de Botton
Graphic artist, print-maker and designer Anthony Burrill is known for his persuasive, up-beat style of communication. His work is held in the permanent collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, New York and has been exhibited in galleries around the world including The Barbican, The Walker Art Centre and The Graphic Design Museum, Breda. In 2012, he made his first foray into curating with the exhibition Made in L.A. – Work by Colby Poster Printing, at KK Outlet in London.
Words and language are an important part of Burrill’s output and he has developed a distinctive voice that is sought after not only by collectors of his posters and prints but also by clients including Wallpaper* magazine, The Economist, The British Council, London Underground and The Design Museum. Burrill is perhaps best known for his typographic, text-based compositions, including the now-famous “Work Hard and Be Nice to People”, which has become a mantra for the design community and beyond.
