Biffy Clyro – Opposites
I went to an excellent exhibition of Thorgerson’s work three years ago at Idea Generation in London (which upon Googling now has apparently ceased to exist). Here’s the blog I posted about the exhibition at the time, although the pictures are broken – probably due to me linking to the non-existant Idea Generation website. However, there is still an exhibition gallery on Flickr.
Thorgerson was the man behind hundreds of amazing album covers, including some of my favourites. As I seem to have found myself designing album covers myself in the last year or so, I can appreciate even more what an inspiring graphic designer he was. Although I can never hope to achieve anything as awesome as he did.
