Building British Business

Building British Business

I produced front cover illustrations for each of three Financial Times reports in a series called A Blueprint for British Business. Each report focussed on a different aspect of the theme. The first was 'Risk Management' and discussed the nature of international economic threats. The second was called 'International Trade and Exports' and focussed on mechanisms for Britain to reach out abroad. The third was called 'Infrastructure Finance' and was about funding big building projects in the UK. There was a guiding principle that the cover had to feature a map of the UK and have a 'blueprint' quality. The rest was left to me. I also produced a suite of seven inside illustrtions for each report.
