Although not from a formal illustrating background, a varied career in Architecture & Urban Design has meant that a pencil and paper were always close to hand; initial scribbles & doodles soon turned into cartoons and illustrations, while payment from friends by way of cake & nice coffee (along with a lot of encouragement) eventually turned into a nice computer and some shiny new pens......
Our subsequent approach to work is likewise somewhat unconventional and we can do no better that to quote the French Scrum Half, Pierre Danos who once said......
"In rugby, as in life, there are piano players and there are piano shifters."
At Front Row Graphics we have a reputation for both...... We relish contrast in all forms be it in terms of aesthetics, media or style, and wherever possible incorporate this into our artwork to achieve strong, robust pieces which still contain a delicate and intimate feel which can be appreciated by all ages and from all perspectives.
Likewise our eclectic mix of clients also remains a constant source of enjoyment, both in terms of the varied scope of work we do and the people we meet along the way, many of whom have gone on to become good friends of the studio.
As such the saying that...... "you're only as good as your client" would suggest that we are actually doing rather well......!
In summary the cornerstone of our work is that we love what we do and the journey that each commission takes us on, and we feel that this positivity comes across in the quality of the end product and ultimately the client's satisfaction.
And yes...... we still do work for cake & coffee some times!
