After working in graphic design for many years, both freelance and agency based, the banks deemed it prudent to make a massive mess of everything. Back to freelance it is and back to university, whilst the time allows, to rebuild my portfolio. The work you see in this site is mostly from this period with a couple of glimpses into the past.

Welcome to Übel...

...the solo project and portfolio of graphic designer Alastair Platt.


Going 'Old School'

This site will also act as an outlet for my work in analogue printing check out the Übel Press to see what's in the pipeline and goto the shop to browse the limited edition prints that are for sale. With Übel Press I'm taking graphic design back to its roots, with work produced using letterpress, relief and screen printing techniques. There are limitations in this kind of work, but this I feel breeds ingenuity. And there is nothing like the tactile experience that comes along with this area of work, actually being able to feel the ink on the paper somehow makes it more beautiful. You can tell passion has gone into the production; this passion can be lost in the digital printouts of the 21st century. See the Übel Press pages by clicking here.

Great design is making something memorable and meaningful."
