Graham Clifford

Graham Clifford is a second-generation graphic designer and typographer. Initially trained by his father, he worked for some of London’s best creative agencies, including Collett Dickenson Pearce and Gold Greenlees Trott – before NYC’s lure proved too strong, and the likes of Chiat/Day and Ogilvy came sniffing. A few years later, he opened his own design consultancy, collaborating with agencies and clients alike on all manner of projects for global brands. Graham was also elected to the Type Directors Club’s Board of Directors (a major honor that still makes him blush). He served for more than a decade, becoming both President and Chairman; he presently holds the title of Chairman Emeritus.
