Neville Brody is an English Graphic Designer that is known for being the Art Director for ‘The Face’ Magazine and ‘Arena’ Magazine. I looks to me like Brody has done a bit of everything. He’s designed record covers for bands such as Nine Inch Nails and Depeche Mode, he was a founding member of Fontworks and has recently created a new font called Times Modern. He has his own Design Practise called Research Studios which opened in 1194 and has spread to countries such as San Fransisco, Paris, Berlin and New York. Research Studios have worked with and created corporate identities for Kenzo, and Homechoice.
I really like this image, probably because it is of one of my favorite bands (if you’d call them that) and the way everything is mirrored. I think it works well for Daft Punk, it suits them. However, if it was anyone else, for example Kate Nash then I don’t think it would have the same effect. It really is all about how to appeal to an audience isn’t it? They have also designed the DVD cover for their latest tour, which I will be buying soon. 🙂
