When I first thought about the design of PHIDOC, two people came instantly to mind. First, Tim Foster – a fellow pupil at Price’s School who eventually ended up as Senior Lecturer in Graphic Design at the University of East London. And, secondly, Andreas Whittam Smith, the first editor of The Independent . In 1987 my late wife Audrey would insist that I buy a copy of the newspaper on Symi to read as we sat outside the Odyssia apartments or just past Nos beach. All that white space (aesthetically brilliant, but commercially restrictive) was such an inspiration and has informed PHIDOC’s design (along with – let us be frank – 'presbyopia issues'!). As for Andreas Whittam Smith, he kindly agreed to give a seminar at the University of Essex. However, I never met him as when he came to give his talk I was living in Nevada!
