Alida Sayer works across the fields of typography, graphic design, sculpture, animation and illustration, using a combination of both hand-crafted and digital processes. Often finding inspiration in contemporary literature, she makes dynamic typographic works that commonly explore the themes of memory and ways of visualising time. Other projects and commissions have included music artwork, fashion branding, sculptural installation, set-design and animated film titles. Sayer studied Architecture then Illustration at Glasgow School of Art, graduating in 2009 and winning a D&AD Best New Blood Award and an :Output Foundation Print Creativity Award (Amsterdam) in the same year. Her debut solo exhibition, ‘There is no why’, took place at Marsden Woo Project Space in 2010, and her work is featured in the books ‘3D Typography’, by Jeanette Abbink and Emily CM Anderson (Mark Batty Publisher, 2010) and ‘Lettering: A Manual of Process’ by Andrew Haslam (Lawrence King, 2011).
