Storm Thorgerson — Poster


Poster I designed a while back for a visiting talk by album cover design legend Storm Thorgerson, the man behind iconic covers such as Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon”. It occurred to me to submit it as it was awarded an iSTD Premier Award earlier this month.

“A continuous ray of light carves out the letterforms as it interacts with a series of prisms, and the reflective print brings an optical colour spectrum effect in homage to Thorgerson’s legendary Dark Side of the Moon cover.” — R. Holt
