Portrait Rian Hughes
 
Rian Hughes, award-winning graphic designer, comic artist and typographer, has produced designs for watches, CDs, animated films, comic strips and Hawaiian shirts for clients from Tokyo to New York to Worthing. He has a cabinet of Thunderbirds memorabilia, a fridge full of vodka, and a stack of  easy listening albums which he plays very quietly.
 
 
 

Design, illustration or »imagemaking«? (E)

 
Type and image are combined in the work of Rian Hughes, type designer, logo designer and illustrator.
Working across disciplines, his work incorporates type as an essential part of the illustration and imagemaking process. Though this melding of disciplines may be seen as a recent trend, made possible by the Mac, it has its roots in the poster work of people like Jean Carlu, Cassandre and Alphonse Mucha.
