The Changing Faces of Bowie | Blam & 100 contributors


The changing faces of Bowie (2013) by Blam and contributors.

A limited release print has been created exclusively for the V&A and will only be available during the David Bowie is exhibition.

Screen-printed matt white onto rainbow holographic, 240gsm Mirri paper.

To create The Changing Faces of Bowie, designer Blam approached over 100 artists and designers and invited them to produce the word ‘Bowie’ in a favourite or bespoke typeface of their choice or creation. The response to the project was overwhelming, a demonstration of the widespread love, respect and admiration that exists for Bowie. Blam has combined 101 Bowies – a dazzling array of typographic styles, logos and symbols representing the constantly changing and ever evolving style of the artist David Bowie. Including contributions from Build, The Chase, Spin, Nom de Strip, Studio NMO, Stockholm Design Lab, Monocle, v23, Paul Belford, Design Project, Corey Holms, Brett Wickens, Johann Zambyski, Pentagram, Crispin Finn, Wallzo, Blam, Anthony Burrill, Wallpaper, Martyn Atkins, The Designers Republic, Trevor Jackson and Jonathan Barnbrook.

The print is available to purchase here
