Since graduating from the BA Graphic Design course, Myles has worked with various charitable causes since setting up his own successful studio in Brighton.
Myles describes his practice ” For me, the purpose of graphic design is simple: get the message across – beautifully and in a way that makes it impossible to ignore. Such an approach demands a certain economy of style. It champions the line. It understands colour. It loves geometry. It creates work that stands the test of time. The best work comes through partnership. Each job is much more than a simple commission: it’s a collaboration. Whether I’m designing for charities, writers, or manufacturers, the work you see here is the result of a cooperative approach.”
Recent projects include:
Brexit & Animals: is made up of ten leading UK animal charities.
It was set up to ensure that the welfare of animals – both in the UK and Europe as a whole – is not endangered by Brexit negotiations and that opportunities for improving animal welfare are fully exploited.
I was asked to design an identity for the group and their manifesto, which would be presented at the House of Lords. The event was sponsored by Baroness Parminter, with speeches from MP Hilary Benn, the RSPCA and many more.
Feedback Global; are aspiring to stop global food waste.
They have a world wide reach, with projects such as Feeding the 5000 where they feed at least 5000 people with food that is deemed ‘waste’ by others.
I worked with Feedback to bring their achievements to life with annual impact reports and infographics. With their staggering numbers and facts, simple visualisations of these were crucial in putting the point across.
Lankelly Chase: are a Charitable Fund who strive to establish the underlying causes of social disadvantage. They provide financial backing for research that will, eventually, enable governments to make society-altering decisions with law and policy.
I designed their most recent report, plus a simplified, print piece. The report provided analysis and learning from over 200 pieces of literature. The challenge was to display this vast body of research in an engaging way that could be used by other foundations and the civil service.
