Studio Operative is a UK-based arts publisher run by Alice Lindsay and Peter Willis. It publishes bi-annual critical journal of illustration, Limner, as well as regularly collaborating with practitioners from a range of creative disciplines on research driven publishing and communication projects.
In May, Studio Operative launched a poster campaign to bring together the visual talents of artists and designers in support of Labour under Jeremy Corbyn in the approach to the UK General election – voting takes place tomorrow (Thursday 8 June).
Poster design contributions quickly came in from designers and illustrators including Pavilion, Peter Nencini, Kiosk, Wai Wai Pang, Jay Cover, Thomas Dowse, Eilis Searson, Sinead Evans, work-form, Colin David Stewart, Sinae Park and Darryl Clifton.
Ahead of the big vote, we asked Alice and Peter to tell the story behind the campaign and their hopes for the power of the political poster as a medium.
