Phil Cleaver is an established and multi award-winning heavyweight in the graphic design world. Protege of Anthony Froshaug, Phil honed his design and typographic skills under Alan Fletcher at Pentagram, Wim Crouwel at TD in Holland and Michael Wolff at Wolff Olins. In 1984 Allied International designers recruited Phil as creative director of branding. In 1987 he established CleaverLandor, a specialist design consultancy, whose success led to such rapid growth that Phil found himself increasingly paper-pushing and decreasingly pencil-pushing, so he set up design consultancy et al in 1992. Phil is a fellow of the Chartered Society of Designers, a founding trustee of The Monotype Museum, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and Professor in the Creative Industries in the School of Art and Design at Middlesex University. In 2012 Phil was invited by renowned creative director David Holmes to collaborate as typographer and book designer alongside Sir Peter Blake, godfather of British Pop Art and four other master artists, to create a box of treasures celebrating eight decades in the life of Sir Peter Blake and The Macallan.
