I only became aware of Carl Warner on Friday, his work was a feature on the BBC’s The One Show. However i have seen his work many times before in the form of advertising, perhaps this subconscious consumption added to my desire to learn more. After a little pottering around online i discovered an extensive portfolio that just keeps getting better with every new piece.
I wanted to find out a little more about the creative behind these food based extravaganzas, so i asked him the questions i tend to ask every creative i enjoy.
