SERCO IN BRIEF
DESIGN BRONZE AWARD
2005 – IMAGES 29
As an illustrator Ian has worked consistently with a diverse range of Editorial, Design and Advertising commissions for over 25 years. A great deal of the work originates from the business, financial and economics sectors of publishing where the ability to derive creative solutions from data heavy analytical content is the order of the day.
Ian has maintained a link with higher education throughout his career, acting as a visiting lecturer for a number of courses across the UK. In January 2014 Ian returned to Manchester School of Art as a 0.5 post on the BA (Hons) Illustration with Animation course where he enjoys the combined practice of artist/researcher/collaborator and educator. He has been a long time member and supporter of the AOI.
The image was part of a body of work produced for Serco for use across a range of corporate publications, the complex nature of Serco’s profile as a facilities management company required a clever interlocking of disparate content within a flexible graphic language.
