Every week the contributors at They Made This are lucky enough to meet up with some lovely and super talented artists. During these sessions we take a look through their portfolios and chat with them about their work. We discuss how they got started, projects they are most proud of and what they are up to next. In this weekly column we will be showcasing some of the excellent work we discover in these session. First up, we feature the lovely work of illustrator Charlie Patterson.
Charlie Patterson came to our attention in 2013. After studying graphic design at Chelsea, he quickly made a name for himself with his Creative Club project, impressing creatives all over London by honouring them for their skills with personalised badges. Some of the creatives featured included Patrick Burgoyne, editor of Creative Review, Alex Bec, director of It’s Nice That and Caroline Pay, deputy executive creative director at BBH, whose personalised badge awards her for being part of the tiny two percent of female creative directors in the advertising industry.
Inside his portfolio we discovered art direction and design for womenswear label Phiney Pet, a spectacular poster campaign for Ace and Tate, an embroidered cover for Creative Review 2013 Gradwatch and a bike customisation project with Jasper Van Den Bosch.
My personal favourites are some really rather lovely recent artworks that manipulate the viewers perception of two dimensional surfaces.
Charlie is also the co founder and co creative at Studio Opposite alongside Jonny Holmes and works alongside Kate at Studio Moross. Brilliantly talented and a lovely guy to boot. Watch this space.
