Work Hard & Be Nice to People

Anthony Burrill "Work Hard"

Anthony studied at the Royal College of Art, London. He has produced advertising for DIESEL, NIKE and The Hans Brinker Budget Hotel. Alongside collaborator Kip Parker he has created web sites for Kraftwerk and AIR. Anthony has recently produced a set of safety posters for London Underground and led a British Council workshop in Kenya, producing a series of anti-corruption posters. He has exhibited at the Barbican and the Pentagram Gallery in London as well as in Tokyo and Stockholm.

"In print, London based Anthony Burrill takes the ordinary and makes it loud. Turning up the visual volume, way past comfort level, and soon the generic is quite alien... Burrill's schemes all use the technique of displacement, he takes the normal and makes it strange."
