Poster containing a brick layout of various sized and coloured rectangles, within each reading ‘TOWNER 100’ to celebrate 100 years of the Towner art gallery in Eastbourne.

2023 marks 100 years of Towner Eastbourne. We were responsible for devising a graphic system that could be used across their marketing to celebrate the centenary of the contemporary art gallery, which also hosts the Turner Prize in the same year.

A traditional seaside town on the south coast of England, Eastbourne has been a popular beach hotspot throughout its history. Inspiration for the graphics was taken from the colourful aura of beach windbreakers, nodding to British summer holiday culture. The infinite nature of the typographic pattern represents the rich history of art in the south east, and its prosperous future.
