Freelance creative Marcus Diamond works for anyone brave enough to commission him. In 2000 alongside a stint writing for Blaze Television he founded the design group Neasden Control Centre. NCC went on to produce a huge and varied range of work for clients such as Action Aid, 4AD, Esquire 55DSL, Island Records Magma Books, Selfridges, Rome Snowboards, MTV and Playboy in a very short amount of time. Sought after in London and beyond, the group’s work covered design, illustration, installation, animation and motion graphics for advertising agencies, book publishers bars, clubs, charities galleries, shops, musicians and magazines.
This variety is mirrored in the range of processes used, from the lowest possible tech through to high-end digital presentation, all underpinned by copious amounts of drawing. In 2003, Die Gestalten Verlag published a sellout monograph of NCC, and this exposure was mirrored in many magazine articles, internationally. A follow up book was published in 2008.
Diamond is keen to continue to develop cross culture design principals across different technology both new and old whilst dealing with narrative, materials, process and drawing, as well as reguarly art directing.
Regularly exhibiting his work has featured at The Centre de Cultura Contemporania de Barcelona, The Filesharing Gallery Berlin, The Modart Festival Munich, The Punct Gallery Tilburg Holland and The National Gallery London.
