Graphic design is Graham’s expertise. He takes great pleasure in manipulating type, image colour, form (etc.) to express an idea. However his real passion for the job comes from meeting the people he works with and learning about the subjects and cultures they introduce him to.
He helps people tell their stories and solve their communication problems, using research, creative thinking and graphic design as his weapons of choice. Making one off pieces like posters and installations or creating strategies, visual systems and tools to work with, like brand identities, websites and marketing campaign identities.
Graham Anderson has just shy of 10 years of experience in graphic design.
