Michael Salu – graduate success

Graphics graduate, Michael Salu, is artistic director at Granta Publications, working across Granta Magazine, Granta Books and Portobello books. He oversees all the visual work produced by Granta, publishing photography and art in Granta magazine, and art direction of all print and digital projects. He was previously Senior Designer at Vintage, the literary division of Random House UK. He has worked on a range of titles, designing several jackets for Vintage Classics - a prestigious list that included Italo Calvino, Raymond Carver, Bruce Chatwin and others. Michael has also worked with the musician Tricky, and also occasionally operates as a freelance brand consultant, designer and illustrator. He was responsible for creating and designing the new brand identity for Curzon Cinemas, recently launched across all the group’s activities.

"I get involved in a variety of projects but my main work is with Granta. Being a commissioning editor my role brings together art and photography, art direction, design, project management, illustration and much more. I run an art department and enjoy working with a host of design professionals. We’ve just finished our ‘Britain’ issue, for which I’ve curated a showcase of works addressing the multiple currents of British identity. Hopefully we’ll also be running an exhibition alongside the launch of the printed edition." says Michael
