Twoducksdisco

Twoducksdisco is the working name of Manchester-based graphic designer Cameron Steward. Specialising in illustration and screen-printing, Steward produces his sometimes sweet, often amusing, occasionally spooky and always innovative designs as album covers, gig posters, tees and prints.

Browsing through his online portfolio, it seems that Steward has pretty much been the go-to guy for gig posters in the Leeds and Manchester area for a good few years, with Gallows, Tunng, Bowerbirds, Roddy Wooble, Warpaint and Get Cape, Wear Cape, Fly all having had their shows promoted via a Twoducksdisco design. His influence stretches beyond the Yorkshire boarders too; Frightened Rabbit and Shoes and Socks Off have both asked him to craft tour posters for them, he was the one of the chosen designers to produce work for this year’s debut of the No Direction Home Festival and his assortment of album artwork includes designs for Ellen and the Escapades, Tubelord and 2000 Trees Festival.  If that wasn’t enough, he’s also created t shirt prints for the likes of Tellison, Lanterns on the Lake and Copy Haho. Heady heights indeed.

Twoducksdisco designs all have an element within them that is characteristic. However, they are also incredibly different in their range; whilst twisted skulls may adorn and strange creatures feature in one design, a snow-topped mountain and a sleeping moon will crop up in the next. Check out more awesome designs via the Twoducksdisco Facebook page or find out more information on his blog.

About Georgie Beardmore

I’m Georgie, a Creative Writing masters student at the University of Sheffield. As might be expected from someone who studies creative writing, I love writing (I write a lot -seriously, a lot), and write a variety of fiction and non-fiction things for various online and printed publications. As well as fiction, I most enjoy writing about music, the arts and student living, but I've also written things about living abroad, travel and local projects and events, as well as waffling about whatever takes my fancy on my blog. I am also heavily involved in student radio; I've been part of Forge Radio (the University of Sheffield's student radio station) for nearly four years now, helping run the station over the last two first as Secretary and then as Assistant Station Manager. Every week I present my own weekly specialist folk music show 'What The Folk?' (the show is as pun-filled as its name would suggest), on which I aim to promote new and exciting folk musicians from across the UK, and this year I've also been a part of organising some gigs as part of 'Forge Presents...', Forge Radio's series of live music events. I'm incredibly passionate about both music and the arts, and so am really excited to be part of the Born In Britain campaign and the opportunity to showcase the wealth of talent both Sheffield and the UK has to offer.
