Storm Thorgerson

Storm Thorgerson - a genius who sadly passed away yesterday. This man inspired my husband to do what he does for a living, graphic design. Thorgerson designed many of the iconic Pink Floyd iconic album sleeves and has also designed art work for other artists such as Muse, The Cranberries and Biffy Clyro. Here are some of our favourite Storm Thorgerson designs: Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon, Animals and Wish You Were Here, The Cranberries - Wake Up and Smell the Coffee and Muse - Absolution.

Such compelling designs. 

Good design and music, what more can you ask for?

  1. A lovely tribute Claire and interesting to hear that he had inspired your husband's career choice.
    Storm's passing was noted on the front page of the Sydney Morning Herald with a photo of the iconic Dark Side cover.
    Only two weeks ago when my husband and I were out having coffee a young man in his twenties walked past us wearing a very new looking Dark Side T-shirt and we agreed it was great to see the appreciation of the music and design continuing in younger generations.

    1. Hi Megan, my husband will be delighted to read this. When I first met him he was wearing Floyd t-shirts and we saw them perform live together (The Division Bell tour) when I was pregnant with our eldest in 1994. Very much part of our lives. Good to hear there's still some appreciation xo

  4. I know these; and they do live on - all of my 20-year-old's friends like Pink Floyd (and other bands I wouldn't expect, like The Doors). Personally, I love the Muse cover!
