Imagine combing an Indian river for the fish made famous by Rudyard Kipling’s poem, The Golden Mahseer. Picture yourself perched atop a thoroughbred racehorse as it gallops at top speed over six furlongs. Visualise a Native American tribal ceremony, with you as the Honorary Eagle Dancer. Steve Edge has done it all, and much, much more.
After winning a National Young Artist of the Year award aged 15, Steve’s sculptures and design work soon led him to work with acclaimed film director George Lucas, who enlisted Steve to work in the art department for such films as Star Wars and Raiders of The Lost Ark.
In 1985, Steve founded his own branding agency, Steve Edge Design, and over the past 30 years he’s worked with some of the world’s biggest names, from Christian Dior and Fortnum & Mason to Rules Restaurant, Cartier and Purdey Guns.
Steve puts part of his creative success down to his dyslexia, which allows him to see the world from new and original perspectives. He has spoken extensively on dyslexia and creativity, highlighting the importance of thinking laterally, not literally.
His belief in the inspirational over the informational has sparked his latest venture: The Outer Thinking Division, which publishes articles and hosts roundtable discussions on a whole range of topics set to touch our lives in the near and distant future.
