Working as an illustrator in a variety of fields and greatly inspired by music, Jonny Hannah’s vibrant designs and witty handmade type have previously been printed in Vogue magazine and on many book covers/jackets in addition to constructing advertisements, design work for clients and collaborative projects. Jonny has incorporated his passion for music, in particular Jazz music, within his linocuts, screenprints and typography and enjoys designing and constructing new artwork at his cottage industry, Cakes & Ale Press. As a printmaker Jonny has created books including ‘The Captain’s Alphabet’ and ‘Hot Jazz Special’ and has continued to compose ‘limited edition affordable prints and artists books.’
Jonny Hannah went to Liverpool Art School to study illustration and then at the Royal College of Art. If you are interested in seeing some of Jonny’s original work first hand he has some work on display in the upcoming TEXT exhibition at Kemistry Gallery, which celebrates ‘type and textuality’ between 3rd and 15th February 2014 which is well worth a visit.
