Pearson studied at Central St Martins, graduating in 2002, before taking a job at Penguin Books as text designer and later, cover designer. He left to establish his own studio – Type as Image – in 2007.

Perhaps Pearson’s breakthrough project was the Great Ideas series, but he has continued to produce striking and much talked-about work including, ealier this year, a new set of covers for George Orwell classics including 1984

 

Pearson’s Typo Talk will be on October 30 at JWT in Knightsbridge, London. Tickets for Typo Circle members are £10 (£6 for students). Non-members pay £16 or £10 for students. Full details here
