Part of the 'outsider' generation that transformed graphic design in Britain in the mid-century era, Tom Eckersley’s instantly recognizable posters have become true icons of 20th-century style. Here, design writer and former Eckersley archivist Paul Rennie gives a fascinating exploration of Eckersley’s life and work, from his Northern upbringing and early career, through pioneering work during the Second World War, to his central role in mid-century graphic design in the decades that followed.
