Storm Thorgerson, a legendary graphic designer, has sadly passed away the 18th April 2013. Storm Thorgerson was often called the best album designer in the world.
Thorgerson’s most famous designs are those for Pink Floyd. His design for the cover of Pink Floyd album The Dark Side of the Moon has been called one of the best album covers of all time. He often places objects out of their normal expected contexts, with vast spaces around them, to give them an surreal appearance while highlighting their beauty.
He used to said:
“I like photography because it is a reality medium, unlike drawing which is unreal. I like to mess with reality…to bend reality. Some of my works beg the question of is it real or not?”
Others projects also very well known are the work for rock bands such as Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Scorpions, Genesis, Europe, Catherine Wheel, Bruce Dickinson,etc. Find here below some of his works we like the most:
