Each week the Scout London logo is designed by a London- based artist, designer, illustrator or photographer. This week the logo has been designed by illustrator Steven Marsden from Peckham
What in London inspires you?
I love seeing old nightclub posters pasted on street walls that have eroded and peeled away to reveal parts of what’s underneath, making accidental collages in the process. I like urban decay, but I also like how fast this city is constantly rebuilding itself.
Any London secrets to share?
I have been helping build Frank’s Café in Peckham for the last couple of weeks. It is a bar and restaurant designed by Practice Architecture. The whole structure is built from reclaimed scaffolding planks with a massive red PVC canopy stretched over it. It is situated on top of a 10-floor multi-storey car park with an amazing view which spans from Battersea Power Station right across to The O2.
How important is London in your work?
Very important. Although, I have nothing to compare it to. If I lived in the countryside I guess I would be producing wood cuts of sheep or something.
What’s next for you?
I finished my degree a few weeks ago, so I’m still trying to work that one out. I would quite like to get into set design for music videos or something along those lines.
