Profile

Brian Cairns is the Creative Director of Brian Cairns Studio, producing award winning work
for an international clients list.

Having studied graphic design at The Glasgow School of Art prior to specialising in illustration,
a love of all things typographic informs the work from hand drawn text to traditional print media such as letterpress and silkscreen.

Brian is also a Senior Lecturer and the Postgraduate Programme Leader in Communication Design at
The Glasgow School of Art and has presented at conferences such as Icon08 Conference in 2014.

For over twenty years the studio has worked on projects for a diverse range of clients. From international
campaigns for global brands to smaller, custom projects that require a more bespoke hand made solution.
The work is typically recognised as being intelligent with a playful wit and sophisticated aesthetic.
