Designing the Music


Graphic design is about making sense. It is about the special outlook on life that translates meanings into visuals and makes history remarkable.

One such a man was Storm Thorgerson, born today (28 February) before 70 years. The English graphic designer is best known for his work for rock artists like Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Scorpions, Europe, The Cranberries, Peter Gabriel…

His famous design studio Hipgnosis gained major international prominence in 1973 with the famed cover design for Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon.

Storm Thorgerson died on 18 April 2013.  Here are some of his major works.
