John Spencer waves the flag for instinct, imagination and the sheer joy of doing things which haven’t been done before. As a graphic designer who loves language, he knows that language and design are as indivisible as words and music in a song.
John is intrigued by both the appearance and meaning of words, which is why he puts them at the heart of his award-winning work. He has a visceral understanding of how words and design can merge to tell unforgettable stories.
In this book, John brings together fifty-two characters from some of the timeless logos he’s created. This A to Z of idiosyncratic letters is his emblematic typeface ‘Time Flies When You’re Having Fun’.
It’s taken John more than thirty years to design his typeface. Time flew while he was having fun.
