Angus Robertson


I’m a Scottish designer based in London, recently graduated Graphic and Media Design at London College of Communication, with a strong interest in typography, motion and editorial design.

I love making work with a sense of humour and exploring notions of taste. Most of all, work that is situated within thorough research and contextual exploration.

‘The Moon Under Water’


George Orwell wrote an essay for the Evening Standard in 1946 titled “The Moon Under Water”, in which he described a fictional pub that existed in his imagination. What he saw to be the perfect image of what a pub should be. This piece takes on a whole new meaning when viewed through the lens of lockdown-Britain and what remains of its ‘pub culture’. 

This publication is a look at Britain’s, at times unusual, relationship with Pubs and what that looks like in the current climate.

Handmade 180 x 270mm 44 pg. hard back cloth-bound book with recessed image front cover and digital printed sleeve.

MS Paint Mono


Initially an investigation into open-source typography - this project looked to push the boundaries of collaboration by creating a system through which a typeface could be designed by anyone using only Microsoft Paint as their tool.

Culminated as; a submissions website, a perfect bound flip-book of entries, and a 2-colour screenprinted type specimen.
