Fantasy Turns To Reality

Mon – Fri, 9am – 4.30pm

No More Nowt

Fantasy Turns To Reality features the work of David Scott, a designer and graphic artist from the North East. 

Originally from Peterlee, David’s practice is an evolving exploration into the mundanity of work, real life and the system, versus the pursuit of escapism, fantasy and hedonism. 

Drawing on influences such as 90s dance music & nightlife culture, the thrill and adrenaline of the fair, and the crash back to reality of life working in call centres, David champions acidic, fluorescent and lurid colours coupled with slogan centric typography, which can all be found in his collaboration with No More Nowt. Showcasing a number of posters created during the Covid lockdowns, Fantasy Turns To Reality has one foot in a nostalgic past and another Nike Air Max looking towards a ‘what if’ future.
