Simon Elvins

Simon Elvins is a designer and artist based in London. With a background in graphic design and print his interest into the wider impact of communication design and how this is changing has led to the inclusion of sound and interaction design into his work.

This has formed the basis for an ongoing body of work that aims to create a better understanding of sound in our everyday environment and how it can be incorporated into communication design rather than simply being a visual representation.

This includes an interactive silkscreen map of London's radio stations, a fully working record player made only of paper and series of audible notation scores using graphite.

Alongside recent clients such as the British Council, London's Gasworks gallery and contemporary uniform designer Field Grey, Simon Elvins is also one part of the collective St. Pierre & Miquelon who's recent activities have included publications, talks and exhibitions.
