Phillip Clayton-Thompson Wall Art

Phillip Clayton-Thompson was a prolific teacher, designer and artist who put his characteristic thumbprint on every surface that’s available. He died aged 79, and his fellow designer Hollis Richard said he was gifted in making every gas bill, shopping list or banal scrap of paper into something marvelous. In fact the back of the envelope was his composition, and even his handwritten envelopes are cherished, and many are framed on walls. Clayton-Thompson was born in London, but he was later raised up in Hastings. He studied for 2 years at the town's art school. Upon his graduation, he joined the national service in the army. He was posted in Egypt, where he went to the Central school for 4 years. He then worked at the WS Crawford advertising agency from 1953 to 1957, and then went freelance and later on set up his own business in 1960.

As an illustrator, he had clients such as British Airways, the British Council, IBM and HarperCollins. He also worked on design for Design magazine and Architectural Review, among other publications. His many jobs included exhibition murals, graphics, corporate identities and catalogues; press design for British Rail, the Economist and the Sunday Times; design and book jackets for Penguin, Methuen and Heinneman. He drew for Artists & Illustrators, the Oldie and Private Eye, for the Daily Telegraph and the Independent. Towards the end of his life, Clayton-Thompson wondered if his intense and wide curiosity had been a mistake even though it had made him happy. He wondered if it could have been better to have done just one thing.
