Ian Edmondson is a graphic artist based in Manchester, UK. He is a recent competition winner for his 'Porntone Universe' series of prints and his typeface 'Neue Ordnung' was chosen by Mute Records as a winner for the Singularity competition set by the legendary band New Order. His work is often starkly two dimensional in execution but has much depth in the terms of content or message. Codes or hidden messages are often present within his work. Graphic reduction and rhythm as well as travel are to be found in much of his work.
The Abstract Logotype was created for Eastern Bloc using two abstract typefaces created by the artist, 'Neue Ordnung' & 'Spectral'. Eastern Bloc is located in Manchester's hippest location, the Northern Quarter and has been a landmark for music lovers since 1985. The artist felt the rhythm and dynamics of the typeface Neue Ordung suited Eastern Bloc perfectly. The colour palette was determined by using the Spectral typeface. www.easternblocrecords.com
