Two years after creating the original identity and typeface for the Made in Birmingham exhibition, we looked to design a more refined, commercial version of the typeface, Central Avenue.
After working with this typeface almost exclusively in black and white, we felt that it would be more interesting to explore it in colour for a type specimen. We produced an unbound booklet which also works as a series of 4 posters – abstract and bright.
I’ve gotten a few requests for Akira, but I’m like “Guy’s do you really think I’d leave out Akira? C’maaaaan.” :) Anyway the first round from the movie that probably got you into anime in the first place.
Akira. Directed by Katsuhiro Otomo. Created by Tatsunoko Production, TMS Entertainment.
This just shows how epic Akira was. The cityscape backdrop is just amazing!

Based in Bristol, Jim wanted to combine his love of music and design into one crowd-pleasing project. He’s certainly hit the nail on the head with these brilliant typeface designs for his favorite bands which include Grizzly Bear, Jack White and Hot Chip. This is an ongoing project and Jim will continue to post up the rest of the music-related alphabet over on his Facebook page.
