I’ve always been a huge fan of Pink Floyd. I like all the songs and the covers are amazing. With crazy psychodelic images, and strange type, I’ve always amused myself with their graphic material. Later on, after I started studying graphic design I researched the interwebs and found out that all their covers, books, posters, etc. have been deisgned by the same guy, Storm Thorgerson. He have always been a friend of the band, and did all their artwork. He have always been a member of the British graphic art group Hipgnosis and his studio, known as Storm Studios does mostly album covers, and music related material, but he also does other stuff, like videos, websites, logos and documentaries. His website is non-conventional and worth a visit. Everything in his work is affected by a surreal aura, with objects placed out of their conventional places, and photography is the most used tool to communicate. He has been working with some great musicians like Bruce Dickinson, Younger Brother, The Cranberries, Shpongle, etc. without mentioning the great Pink Floyd and the solo albuns from Pink Floyd members. Check out some astonishing images by Storm Thorgerson.
