Fredun Shapur: Surprise Surprise!

Fredun Shapur: Surprise Surprise!

Studio Fotokino is hosting an exhibition on one of our favourite Artists and Graphic Designers, Fredun Shapur.

After studying design at the Royal College of Art in London, he opened his studio in 1959 and worked on the creation of many well known logos, packaging designs and posters.

However, Shapur's work mainly focused on the world of childhood. In 1965, he wrote and illustrated the famous book "Round and Round and Square", which is available to purchase through Counter-Print and whose combinations of shapes and colours inspired a whole generation. He continued his work in this sphere by creating numerous toys for children in wood – first hand-made, then industrialised by manufacturers such as Naef, Galt Toys in Europe and Creative Playthings in the United States.
