We make high quality, limited edition graffiti books full of world class writers and art so fresh it’ll scorch your retinas.
Having trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and been involved in the graffiti scene for over 20 years, Robert has somewhat eclectic credentials. He has worked as a media professional in films, theatre, television, radio and print media journalism, and has now added publishing to the rapidly growing list.
His role at MONOKROME involves conceptual genesis engineering, radical personnel motivation and being tight with money. MONOKROME was his idea and he never lets anyone forget it.

As Creative Director, it’s Aaron’s job not to forget that the whole look of the project relies on him, because, frankly, the other two can’t be trusted when it comes to design. Having trained under the legendary Vaughan Oliver, he has gone on to design for Stylorouge design house and formed his own company 12 Orchards in 2011. His role at MONOKROME involves acting as therapist to Rob after logistical breakdowns, conjuring mouth-watering layouts, weaving a colourful alchemy throughout the design and dreaming up expensive new ways to bankrupt the company.

Least likely to say: “That deadline is ridiculous!”
Sub editor and proof reader
As Rob generously puts it “If there’s a typo or some bad grammar, blame Sherles.” Sherles Salter studied a BSc in Psychology at Staffordshire, before realising that it clashed with his love of dance music and inebriation, and promptly left.
He divides his time between writing and designing his bespoke greetings cards and exploring his own hippocampus with the aid of pharmaceuticals. His role at MONOKROME finds him seeking out errant punctuation, correcting Rob’s colourful but inappropriate additions to grammatical structure, and wrestling with the notion of the vernacular.
Most likely to say: “If you don’t edit that I’m not putting my name to it”
Least likely to say: “We need more semi-colons…”
Executive in Charge of Tea
With a GCSE in woodwork and a criminal record, Julian was the obvious choice for the MONOKROME graduate scheme. Since joining, he has shown high proficiency in all forms of tea making, from Early Grey via Lap Sang Sou Chong and upto and including all herbal profusions (except liquorice, which he claims he is allergic to.) His role at MONOKROME has recently been augmented and he now not only presides over beverage making of all descriptions, but is also the Project Manager responsible for biscuits and snack-based foodstuffs. It’s hard to imagine the smooth running of MONOKROME without him.
