About This Book

A very modern, versatile designer (see his contribution to Coast to Coast), Charles Wilkin of Automatic Art and Design is one of America’s most noted exponents of modern deconstructive typography, juxtaposing multi-layered images with type reminiscent of David Carson.
With its splendid 50s colour palettes and a fresh look at classic Americana, his style has attracted a multitude of awards and clients ranging from Coca Cola to adidas.

Relying on instinct rather than expectations, Wilkin visually deconstructs the rhetorical line between fine art and graphic design through his unique use of collage, found objects, imagery and typography.
Not afraid of mixing the finest of lines with the brash imagery, Wilkin has a way with cut and paste and combining the hitherto uncombinable: in Index-A he takes design apart, dissects it and reassembles it in bold, radical re-workings of anything from Opart to open space, from Panton to Pantone.

With a foreword and introductions by Josh Berger (plazm magazine ), Matt Owens and Warren Corrbit (one9ine) Index-A documents this intrinsic and emotive process – it acts as both a catalogue of his informal and dynamic vernacular and a reminder of the importance and influence of individual expression in an extremely commercial world.
