Phil Cleaver is an established and multi award-winning heavyweight in the graphic design world. Protégé of Anthony Froshaug, Phil honed his design and typographic skills under Alan Fletcher at Pentagram, Wim Crouwel at TD in Holland, and Michael Wolff at Wolff Olins. In 1984 Allied International Designers recruited Phil as creative director of branding. In 1987 he established CleaverLandor, a specialist design consultancy, whose success led to such rapid growth that Phil found himself increasingly paper-pushing and decreasingly pencil-pushing, so he set up design consultancy et al, in 1992; a tight-knit consortium of like-minded design professionals. Phil is a fellow of the Chartered Society of Designers, a founding trustee of The Monotype Museum, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, and Professor in the Creative Industries in the School of Art and Design at Middlesex University. He lectures worldwide on design, and his early typographical work is archived in St Bride’s Printing Library. His book design is in the permanent collection of the V&A Museum’s National Art Library. In 2012, Phil was invited by renowned creative director David Holmes to collaborate as typographer and book designer alongside Sir Peter Blake, godfather of British Pop Art, and four other master artists, to create a box of treasures celebrating eight decades in the life of Sir Peter Blake and The Macallan. Phil also wrote and designed, What They Didn’t Teach You In Design School, published by Ilex Press, distributed by Thames & Hudson.

“I became more and more interested in…the idea of photography. Not the technique of photography, but the idea of what photography is about and the role photography plays in our visual understanding of situations or issue or an event.” Sam Faulkner is a photographer from the UK who for the last five years has been making portraits of reenactors for a project called Unseen Waterloo. I saw a couple images from the project at Paris Photo LA and was just blown away, so I reached out to Sam and asked if we could have a conversation about how the project came about and what inspired him to make the transition from conflict photojournalist to fine art photographer. NOTE: There are a couple spots in the conversation where you may notice some mic noise on Sam’s end—it sounds like the shuffling of papers. There’s such great conversation around it that I’ve attempted to minimize it as much as possible in lieu of simply removing it. I hope it’s not too much of a distraction.
