You & Me Me & You

Graphic artist Anthony Burrill recently created an enormous typographic mural in Leeds, England. The short documentary below explores the ideas behind the artwork and its meaning to the designer. You&Me and Me&You shows Burrill’s signature letterpress typography blown up to eye-catching proportions, covering one side of the 88-ft-high, seven-story canal-side building, The Calls, in Leeds city center. Powerful in white on black, the piece embodies Burrill’s mission to “say the most with the least, and connect with people through words” on a monumental scale, and speaks to the importance of human connection during the pandemic.

 

The film was produced by Charlotte Rosson with production company Maniac, and DoP Matt Gentleman. The mural was curated by Laura Wellington at In Good Company, supported by King & Co and installed by Bread Collective.
