Chris James

When we first sketched out our idea for Look Up, we ran it by Chris. We value his opinion, we love his work, and we're delighted that he's on board.

A Stockholm-based graphic artist and designer, Chris graduated from Kingston University in the early 00s, cutting his teeth as a graphic designer before moving into fashion. When he's not designing apparel graphics he's creating hand-painted typefaces – as F Is For Fonts – or experimenting with screen printing. The three prints in Chris’s In The Night series exhibit a keen eye for colour and bold, graphic shapes. There’s a unifying style and tone, somewhere betwixt fairy tale and nightmare. Chris’s first Look Up edition was Happy Pills, and like his In The Night series there’s a dark undercurrent lurking just beneath the surface. Whether your glass is half full or half empty, there’s no denying it... Chris’s prints have a technicolour energy that always brings a smile.
