Gary is the co-founder (together with Pref) of Typographic Circle, a collective of artists. Each artist in this movement explores the boundaries of typographic design. The group takes the individual style and originality from the graffiti world and mixes it with the constraints of type-making.
‘For me, when words are written down they are more powerful than an image. There is less ambiguity and I feel that a lot is lost through symbolism, so a word or phrase is more direct, more efficient. The point of what I / we do is to manipulate the type in such a way that it has aesthetic merit anyway, aside from the message itself.’ – Gary Stranger, 2016
