About the Author

Alex Fowkes is a freelance designer based in London, UK. While working full time Alex completed lots of typography-based briefs in his spare time, from personal pieces to commissions and album covers. His work varies from hand-drawn type to digital typography, but he always tries to retain a human element to his work. The Sony Timeline is the biggest typographical piece he has undertaken, measuring almost 150 square metres and taking over 2 months just to design.
