“A selection of photographs of my studio where i work on freelance projects and practice the art of graphic design. This is my room of ideas and inspiration. where my dressing table becomes my desk and my wardrobe becomes my wall of ideas.”
My Name is Lee Stokes a London-based graphic designer, whose creative passions are typography, editorial design and branding. I like to have a hands on relationship with design and the materials I use as my work is very image based and handcrafted with an attention to detail. When a project is complete, photographed and printed the result remains tactile. I enjoy frequent trips to D.I.Y stores and paper stockists where I like to collect and experiment with unconventional materials for print and packaging projects, this stimulates and forms my design method.

I understand that these are horrific, disturbing images and not remotely beautiful.
At first I was under the impression that the albatross remains had been arranged by the photographer around piles of plastic trash; then I read this article and learned that “nesting chicks fill their bellies with plastic as their parents collect and feed them bits that look to them like food. As a result, tens of thousands of albatross chicks die of starvation, choking, internal bleeding and poisoning each year.”
I feel the set deserves posting.
Present for a friend.
