Nick Hand

Nick Hand is a graphic designer and photographer based in Bristol. His graphic design clients include, Howies; Spike Island, Bristol and the Arts Council England. Between 2009 and 2010, Hand cycled the coast of Britain and Ireland – meeting and talking with the artists and crafts-people he met along the way. This large-scale, long-term project was documented through a series of photo-films and sound-slides, highlighting the skills and traditions honed and developed in different parts of the countries. Hand has produced similar projects, following the length of the Hudson River in the USA documenting the artists and craftspeople he met along the way.

Hand also helped to set up tBristol-basedsed Letterpress Collective, who reside in Bristol’s Centrespace Gallery. The aim of the collective is to harness a new generation of letterpress enthusiasts – sharing skills and offering opportunities for individuals to try letterpress printing.
