North & South Print


Designer: Patrick Murphy
North & South Limited Edition Print
Northern Edition range

The Northern Editions print project looks at the differences between the north and south of England. We ask northern designers to visually explore ’northern-ness’, this can be personal ideas, thoughts, recollections or responses to more stereotyped images or concepts.

At the heart of the project is a desire to explore graphically the thoughts and feelings of the north, both positive and negative. Is there a difference between the north and south of England, if so, what would it look like?

The north and south are essentially the same but also totally different. Exploring this theme of same but different, I spliced the two words together creating harmony but also a disconnect.
