‘One Plain, One Fancy’ project from London-based design and art direction studio Mat Dolphin featured on Computer Arts Uk . Creative director Phil Cook explains more, here’s an excerpt of the interview:
Computer Arts: What is One Plain, One Fancy?
Phil Cook: It’s an ongoing project we setup asking people to submit their own visual interpretation of the phrase: ‘One plain, one fancy.’ We’ve had hundreds of entries so far. It’s open to everyone. There’s been some absolutely great responses from both amateur and relatively well-known designers and illustrators.
CA: Where did the idea come from?
PC: The phrase originally came from Duffie Thompson ñ the grandmother of Tom Actman who’s the other half of Mat Dolphin. When people visited her house, they were allowed to have two biscuits: ‘One plain, one fancy.’
CA: What does she think of the project?
PC: She has since passed away, so this project was started in her honour. It’s also something we’re planning to turn into an exhibition in the future, alongside cancer care charity Marie Curie.
