Tony Meeuwissen's portfolio spans five decades of popular art, from the covers of a score of Penguin bestsellers to a collection of Royal Mail stamps. His designs have graced the covers of Radio Times and The Sunday Times magazine and even the sleeve of a Rolling Stones album. He's also produced two award-winning books and designed the world's most beautiful stamp.
Tony has won the Victoria & Albert Museum's illustration award and uniquely scooped two gold and two silver awards from The Designers and Art Directors Association (D&AD). Little wonder that a collection of his work resides in the V&A's Department of Prints and Drawings.
'There are very few occasions where I'd use the word genius,' said former D&AD president Mike Dempsey, 'but if ever there was one in our creative community, it is Tony Meeuwissen.'
