Tony Credland works in London, as a Lead Tutor on the MA Graphic Design programme at London College of Communication and as a print-based graphic designer.

He was co-organiser of the 'Cactus Network' which manifested itself as a mail-art magazine, and later the poster magazine 'Feeding Squirrels to the Nuts'. He graduated from Portsmouth University, Chelsea School of Art, Central Saint Martins, London and later studied at the Jan van Eyck Academie in Maastricht. He is active in grassroots politics in London, working collectively with the local Indymedia network in the UK, and recently co-edited a book We are everywhere; the irresistible rise of global anticapitalism.
