Simon Cook, one of the six graduates featured in our ‘Class of 2010’ issue in September, is opening his first solo exhibition at Concrete Hermit‘s Carnaby Street space in London tomorrow evening.

 

Cook set up his own company, Stone and Spear, back in 2008 while still a student on the BA (Hons) Graphic Design course at Nottingham Trent University. His distinctive style, which combines photographic imagery with brightly-coloured graphics, has since appeared in work for clients including Anorak Magazine, Poolga (who make art and wallpapers for the iPhone and iPad) and DPI magazine.

The show will feature a series of A2 prints by Cook, which are shown here. He will also launch the Stone and Spear product line, which includes badges, stickers and greetings cards, in the gallery at the same time.

More info on Stone and Spear is at stoneandspear.com, and Concrete Hermit’s website is concretehermit.com.
