Pascal Anson

Pascal Anson makes the ordinary into the extraordinary.

Through the simplest alteration, the familiar, and often taken-for-granted object, is transformed into something playful and thought provoking. Creatively, Anson works mainly in 3 dimensions utilising the normality of the world around us to challenge the measure of our own sanity. Pascal Anson’s work is diverse and all-encompassing, having designed everything from business cards to jumbo jets and most in-between.

Having studied at Kingston University and Design Products at the Royal College of Art, Anson now lectures on Design at both and at numerous institutions and conferences globally. His book ‘Ordinary made Extraordinary’ (Penguin) was published in 2014.
