Fred Deakin


As half of the band Lemon Jelly Fred Deakin has been Mercury and Brit nominated, sold over half a million albums and headlined stages at almost every major UK music festival.

In 1998 he co-founded the ground-breaking London design agency Airside which won and was nominated for two BAFTAs, eleven D&ADs, four Design Week Awards including Best In Show, a Webby and many others. Airside’s clients included Virgin Atlantic, the Beatles, BBC, Greenpeace and Intel. After achieving all their ambitions the founders closed Airside on a high last year.

Fred has been a tutor on Central Saint Martins’ MA Communication Design course since 1997.  He has given lectures at the Design Museum, the Barbican, RCA, LCC, Design Indaba and Pictoplasma among many others; he has performed at TED, run animation workshops in the V&A and lectured around Indonesia for the British Council. He was one of the working group for the Gowers Review white paper on the UK’s creative economy, presented to the DCMS in 2006.

In the last year he has created interactive art for France’s national digital museum La Gaite Lyrique and released a solo album under the name Frank Eddie.
