The authors

Vertical Futures is a collaboration between two friends called Nick, who first met at a northern art college over 20 years ago.

We’ve always admired each other’s design work but it was really over long sessions spent drinking cold German beer and Mexican Mezcal, and discussing shared interests like football, cycling, art and design, that a lifelong friendship was born.
