Hachette River of Authors

I was commissioned by The Graphic History Company and publishing giant, Hachette, to create this sprawling mural across six floors of their brand new headquarters in central London. The brief was to create a typographic piece of art which incorporated the names of nearly 4000 authors published by the various imprints of Hachette since 1768. My idea was to hand letter each name to create this inky, flowing design running from the lower ground floor, right up to the top floor along the lift lobby walls and stairwells throughout the building. I chose the colours to add to the dynamic, water-like effect, aimed to reflect it's stunning Thameside location.
