Name check

Oh, the joy of simple graphic representations. When they involve an effortless play on words, quirky typography and a dollop of humour,  they are pure pleasure.

Next month, design consultancy Patrick George is publishing What’s in a Name?, a collection of graphic interpretations of 100 boys’ and 100 girls’ names.

From Aaron to Will and Angie to Wendy, the names get an illustrative treatment by Patrick George founder Peter Scott. They are revealed in a realignment of their letters, visually represented or just implied – making some enjoyably obvious and others tantalisingly obscure.




What’s in a Name? by Patrick George is published on 19 April, priced £9.99.
