Welcome to Leeds Print Workshop

Written by Abby Dix-Mason Leeds Inspired  13/04/2016

Introducing Graham Pilling, the fourth of our Leeds Film Festival poster designers. Graham is a graphic artist who produces bold and compelling design and illustration work under the moniker Army of Cats.“I'm fortunate that my work spans a nice mix of client and personal projects. One month I may be working on branding for a startup, and  the next it might be a record cover or t-shirt art. It allows me to have a nice little toolbox of different styles to dip into and it keeps my work interesting – both for me and hopefully its intended audience! I guess I'm...
