Oliver Pearson is a self-proclaimed ‘visual communicator’ who has recently finished his degree in Graphic Design at Central Saint Martins. Believing that today design has a focus on the idea and thinking behind a project, Pearson works across all mediums finding the one most appropriate for the the idea’s communication.
Working most notably with film, print, installation and publication design, in the effort to communicate the idea in the clearest, most concise, and hopefully most entertaining way.
Pearson often remarks that he uses metaphors or translations in his ideas, which play out to reveal a ‘punchline’. Depending on the brief, these punchlines can be subtle or very loud indeed. Either way, he always works with the aim to create entertaining and precise illustrations of ideas, both simple and complex.
