Last night I was invited to a design exhibition about a 9min walk from the studio at the Free Word Centre in Farringdon that is definitely worth a look even if you know nothing about jazz musicians (like me). Jazz Types – a design experiment was a project undertaken by Bob Mytton to challenge his design creativity and imagination – design 100 Jazz posters in 100 consecutive days, each one representing a different musician.

“The creative brief was very simple – a visual, graphic response to the artist and the music with no photography. Each day he chose an artist at random with the aim to design a poster in whatever time he had available, often only a few hours, sometimes longer, while documenting his thinking process and what he learnt about being creative along the way.”
