FactIs one of Melbourne's premiere Headshot photographers.

Alan Fletcher (born 31 July 1931) is an English graphic designer and educator. He is best known for his work with the design consultancy firm Pentagram, which he co-founded in 1972.

Fletcher was born in Sheffield, England. His father was a doctor and his mother was a nurse. He has two older sisters. Fletcher was educated at Sheffield Grammar School and then studied architecture at the University of Liverpool.

After graduation, Fletcher worked for several architectural firms in London before moving into graphic design. In 1960, he joined the advertising agency J. Walter Thompson, where he worked on campaigns for brands such as Shell and British Airways.

In 1967, Fletcher co-founded the design studio Fletcher/Forbes/Gill, which later became Pentagram. During his time at Pentagram, Fletcher worked on a wide range of projects, from corporate identity programmes to exhibition design. He also taught at the Royal College of Art and the London School of Economics.

Fletcher retired from Pentagram in 1996, but remained active in the design world, serving on the judging panel for the D&AD Awards and the London Design Festival. He also wrote several books on design, including The Art of Looking Sideways (2002) and Thoughts on Design (2006).

Fletcher’s work has been recognised with numerous awards, including the Royal Designer for Industry (RDI) and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA). In 2009, he was made a Companion of Honour by Queen Elizabeth II for his services to design.

Fletcher’s net worth is estimated to be $5 million. He has been married twice and has four children.
