Close encounters with a Nessie-style monster, swarms of bug-like video game characters and memories of Friern Barnet Photographic Society all figure in graphic designers’ contributions to Day14, a curatorial and publishing venture created by Andy Maw and Bill Griffin. The pair asked the likes of Pete Fowler, Eboy (work shown left and right respectively), Neville Brody, Rinzen and others to create images of what astonished them as children. A book and exhibition entitled A Source of Wonder is the result, with 50 print canvases per artist and a limited edition of 1000 for the publication. Ten per cent of the sales of prints will go towards Oxfam’s Education Now campaign. For more details visit www.day14.com.
