Anthony Burrill

Graphic Artist & Typographer

What are the responsibilities of visual communicators today? How can designers work commercially whilst retaining personal integrity? How can you successfully reconcile personal politics and the needs of clients? What makes the work of designers valuable? Anthony explores these questions and how he’s answered them through his own work and career.


Graphic artist Anthony Burrill combines a knack for simplicity that packs a punch with analogue craft skills and powerful, positive messages. Burrill frequently collaborates with other forward-thinking creatives across disciplines spanning music, architecture, curation, education and more; pushing his traditional discipline of choice, letterpress printing, into bold new territories.

Words, gentle humour, no-nonsense communication and people are at the heart of Burrill’s practice and his distinctive brand of upbeat messaging: its core DNA is one created through a longstanding passion for creativity without limitations, the power of simplicity and an innate curiosity about the world and people in it.

Burrill’s work is held in the permanent collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum, Design Museum, London, Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, New York and has been exhibited internationally including the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Triennale, Milan and Kunsthal, Rotterdam. 

Burrill was born in Littleborough, Lancashire. After studying Graphic Design at Leeds Polytechnic he completed an MA in Graphic Design at the Royal College of Art, London. He now lives and works on the Isle of Oxney, Kent.
