Joe Hales is a London based graphic designer, whose work is underscored with an ongoing interest in the relationship between the form, function and content of print based media. This is reflected in projects spanning a diverse range of clients, where careful attention is paid to producing aesthetically relevant, clear and engaging typographic work. Recent projects include an artist monograph for Nicola Hicks (Elephant in association with Flowers Gallery), a series of exhibition catalogues for Bloomberg SPACE, a group exhibition catalogue for Royal Academy Schools, a visual identity for new community, educational and creative space Rabbits Road Institute and the visual design for the Longplayer app, a musical composition lasting 1000 years by Jem Finer. Joe is a design consultant for Falmouth University and teaches typography at The Faculty of Art, Design & Architecture, Kingston University, London. He is a founding member of collective The International Western whose work to date has concentrated on mechanisms of transmission, translation and transformation of information. Recent pieces include the recording of Four in the Wave (in Verfreundungseffekt Magazine Vol. I, London, 2013), and the site-specific performance and print edition Calling All (Over Time, Royal Museums Greenwich, London, 2014 and Chisenhale Dance Space, London, 2016).
