About tristan

I'm Tristan Kerr, an artist and designer specialising in type.

After working in Switzerland as a print technician in a renowned screen-print studio and as a designer in Paris, I discovered my passion for Lettering Design and the revival of traditional Sign-Painting.

My work is predominantly influenced by yesteryears street signage, urban art and nostalgic ideas.
I've worked on commissions spanning from hand-painted advertisements for Penfold’s wine to assisting illustration projects for Hermés, Paris.

Along with a formal degree in Graphic design, my style and art practice has evolved through extensive experimentation, travel and research. My artworks are being exhibited in galleries in Australia and Europe.

Tristan's areas of expertise:
- Hand lettering and Typographic Design
- Business Identity & Branding
- Bespoke Sign-Painting & traditional Gold-Leaf Gilding
- Public Art Murals and large scale Signage
- Art direction and consultancy

Clients Include Penfolds, Globe international, Adelaide Casino, Sean Connolly, Anamorphee Paris and Geoff Hardy Wines.

Tristan is currently represented by The Illustration Room and can be contacted for commissions at katie@illustrationroom.com.au
