After freelancing as a designer/illustrator/teacher in New York, Gill went to London on a whim and stayed fifteen years. There, he started Fletcher/Forbes/Gill (later renamed Pentagram). After leaving F/F/G (it was getting too big,) he continued to work in London for a few more years. He returned to New York to write and design Beatlemania, a multimedia and live history of the Sixties, which ran on Broadway for three years.
His graphics have been exhibited in major institutions all over the world and his lectures are legendary. He has written many books on design and illustration, as well as a number of books for children. He earned a Lifetime Achievement Award from the London Art Directors’ Club and The NY Art Directors Club elected him into their Hall of Fame. His latest book is “Bob Gill, so far.”
