Paul Pateman aka Pâté is an award-winning London-based graphic artist, designer and art director, working on a diverse range of personal and commercial projects. Pâté creates idea-led image and type compositions filled to the brim with irreverence and wit demonstrating his wicked eye for a visual pun. He hates the overlapping lines created when colouring with felt tip pens. He’s not French but he does love a good baguette.
