PDF’s first event of 2022, all creatives welcome!

“Hyper-detailed, hyper-rewarding works” – It’s Nice That

The mesmeric visuals of Supermundane have become an instantly recognisable feature of the contemporary design landscape.

His signature geometric drawings, known for their playful use of colour, line and optical effects, have been commissioned for almost every kind of setting. Whether he’s designing the cover of a Penguin book, collaborating on a bespoke rug for, or building a site-specific installation for the community of Great Ormond Street Hospital, Rob’s work is always infused with his distinctive humour and hyper-colourful imagination. Prolific in output, with a portfolio spanning almost 20 years, his work has been published and exhibited worldwide.

Clients include: Apple, Arts Council England, Leeds Train Station, V&A, HP, *Wallpaper,, Penguin, American Express, Dolby Sound and Liberty of London.
