The Granta Book of the African Short Story

Hand screen printed textile design commissioned by Granta for The Granta Book of the African Short Story. This screen printed book cover design was designed with graphic designer Miriam Rosenbloom for Granta. The design was inspired by traditional woven Kente cloth researched on a visit to Ghana.  From Granta’s website:

“The Granta Book of the African Short Story introduces a group of African writers
described by its editor, Helon Habila, as ‘the post-nationalist generation’.
Presenting a diverse and dazzling collection from all over the continent – from
Morocco to Zimbabwe, Uganda to Kenya – Habila has focused on younger,
newer writers, contrasted with some of their older, more established peers,
to give a fascinating picture of a new and more liberated Africa.”

The book is now on pre order, so look out for it in the shops for summer reading !

Tile Designs for Wayfinding System

3 Tile designs relating to the local history, people and architecture of the surrounding area of Stockwell Park in South London.  Eight artists were given the brief which required designs to tessellate, be colourful and work well when grouped together.  My themes were Victorian Motifs, The Windrush ship from Jamaica and Portuguese tiles.   The tiles are part of the wayfinding signage for Stockwell Park and provide a visual identity for the area.

Partnership with Hat-Trick Design, BPTW Architects and Mesh Partnership, March 2010, Stockwell Park London.
