Graphic Thought Facility


Graphic Thought Facility: Resourceful Design is the first exhibition at the Art Institute devoted solely to the work of a single design firm. Established in 1990 by Paul Neale, Andy Stevens, and Nigel Robinson, GTF is emerging as one of the most progressive and creative design firms working in both two and three dimensions. The firm is well known in Britain for creating the brand identities of some of the bastions of British design, including Habitat, the Design Museum in London; and Frieze, London’s major annual contemporary art fair. Also active in book design, GTF designed monographs on the work of Tord Boonjte and Ron Arad as well as the exhibition catalogue for the 54th Carnegie International in 2003, all of which are presented in the exhibition. Projects for the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Science Museum—including exhibition and installation graphics—and products for the Tate Britain and Tate Modern retail stores evidence the firm’s versatility in bringing their practice from page to space.
