Portrait of Wally Olins
Wall of Wally is a project originated by London based graphic designer Jamin Galea, where illustrators are invited to submit their own interpretation of the iconic portrait of Wally Olins – one of the leading figures in modern graphic design in the 20th Century-.
by Jordan Andrew Carter
The website acts as an online tribute to Olins, who sadly passed away last year. Ultimately, it also works as an illustration directory for prospect commissioners.

A selection of portraits and a limited edition publication are currently showcased in Material Gallery until tomorrow. All proceeds from the books will go to Ella’s Home Run, a charity chosen by Olins’ wife.
