Barrie Tullett

1903 Oliver Typewriter
The Oliver No. 3 Standard Visible Writer

Barrie Tullett grew up in East London. In between starting a foundation course at St. Martins School of Art and finishing a degree course at Chelsea School of Art he worked as a school keeper, a screen printer and a paste-up artist – although eventually graduating as an illustrator, his portfolio was full of letterpress printmaking and he thought he was a typographer. He has worked as a freelance graphic designer ever since, although he still occasionally draws things for money.

Barrie has taught in London, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Lincoln and, alongside his teaching responsibilities, works with Philippa Wood, Ken Cockburn, Alison Bowden and Brian (Irvine) Peacock on projects for The Caseroom Press.

His work has been nominated for a number of awards and has appeared in various magazines and journals. He lives in Lincoln with his family.
