45rpm WHAT

  • Posted by aron
  • 5 April 2011

45rpm also goes by the name Matt. You might have met him when he worked at the howies store in Bristol or perhaps you'd have seen him on his fixed gear bike flying down Park street wearing one of our t-shirts. He's instantly recognizable, with a big beard and mesmerizing eyes. He's a howies man through and through.

As well as setting up a bike collective called No Gears Bristol he's a graffiti artist specializing in custom typography and one half of the WHAT collective.

We love his work, especially his recent submission (below) for a competition by Dont Panic. Years of broken and used skate decks have been recycled to create this unique piece of art.

If you like you can help him win a hamper of fruit by voting for his submission right here.

Oh, and you can follow his rants on twitter here > @45rpmWHAT

I think that's everything.

Steve Leard is a graphic designer and illustrator living in Bristol. He's a graduate of the Cardiff School of Art & Design 2007 (same as me), and currently works for award-winning design studio Staziker Jones, who are based in Cardiff.

He's a thoroughly nice chap and a very good friend of mine, which is why I want to share with you his new website.

His portfolio consists of a mix of illustration, typography, branding and web design. It features new work, including his illustration for the recent Ink Dot Exhibition (pictured above), which howies exhibited last year.

You can follow his twitter feed here and view his website here > LEARD

And if you like design blogs, he has one of those too > DesignYak
