British Design Legend dies

April 19, 2013

Sad to hear today the passing of graphic designer Storm Thorgerson, who is most widely know for his Pink Floyd album cover designs.

Like many accomplished designers he was passionate about his work and quite a character. I can still vividly recall as a young boy studying the design of Dark Side of The Moon, trying to interpret some apparently obvious yet elusive, hidden meaning. Listening to the album (on headphones!) brought me closer, but of course I was still young. It was perhaps, his most famous piece of work and possibly one of the most iconic album covers of all time.

He will be missed, but his striking, beautiful and often surreal work is indelibly stamped upon British culture.
