Amanda Tatham

  • United Kingdom
  • Member since 1978

I've been an awarded member since 1978 when I was Alan Fletcher's assistant at Pentagram. One of his designs that I put together, detailed and produced, got into D&AD. It was a beautiful little book on patience card games.

I joined Pentagram straight from the LCP. After 4 years, I wanted experience working for another design company. Bad mistake. Alan had said, 'I hope you aren't making a mistake' and he was right. Most of my ex-Pentagram friends had started up on their own and so I started Amanda Tatham Design in 1980.

Since then I've worked for myself with a small team and now alone, but for about 10 years in the middle I was in partnership with other designers and we were amazingly successful. First at Lambton Place Design and then Tatham Pearce. Several of my designs were awarded by D&AD. The last one was Magic! stamps designed by Sam Griffiths and me for Royal Mail. They were nominated for a Yellow Pencil. I worked out that it was one in the 24,000 designs submitted.

Now I take on only the projects that I want to design and am phasing out of the creative rat race, living in the now, a student again and a yoga teacher. But I'll always be a designer too.
