The Typographic Circles’ Circular Supplement -Designed for Life Edition 02# Simon Esterson

Simon Esterson’s love for design centered in the heart of studying A level art, and an interest in journalism. He began young life in the career of graphic design working at an instant print shop, creating letter headings and wedding invitations and practicing the art of print, before waiting to apply for his now well known position at Architects Journal, which he started at in 1978. It was here that saw his work soar for creating clear and concise letter headings, logo’s and navigational equipment to the readers of this weekly magazine, and become art editor in 1983. Whilst here Esterson continued to further his practice with experimental projects, one being the Edinburgh Times in 1981 for the Edinburgh Fringe festival. A collaboration with Deyan Sudjic and Peter Murray followed, to create an architectural magazine called Blueprint. A major increase in public popularity saw Simon leave AJ. A collaboration with Mike Lackersteen went on to become studio Esterson Lackersteen. Simon travelled with The Guardian, Harper’s magazine, Reportage and many over sea’s magazine such as Domus, NZZ, Stil and Publico. All these magazines saw the continued evolution of Simon’s bold use of coloured shape and large typography alongside beautiful photography with the final touch of simple yet effective composition. He is currently the Art Director at Eye Magazine.
