Graphic designer, musician and owner of the design group ‘Barnbrook’, Jonathan Barnbrook was born in Luton in 1966. Since leaving college in 1990, he has chosen to work with a mixture of mainly cultural institutions and activist groups, believing that graphic design can be a force for cultural and social debate. As a result he has completed a steady stream of political personal work. He is also known for his collaborations with the anti-advertising collective Adbusters, Damien Hirst, and was a longtime visual collaborator of David Bowie, including the design of his last album Blackstar for which he won a Grammy. His font ‘Mason’ was one of the first digital typefaces acquired by MoMA, New York in 2013. His graphic design was exhibited in a major retrospective at the Design Museum, London in 2007 and a touring exhibition that has been shown in over ten countries.
