History of Graphic Design

February 21, 2012


The person that I have for my project is Neville Brody. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of information about Neville but he is a well known designer, typographer, and art director.  Neville Brody was born in London where he attended school at the London College of Printing. After college Neville’s work became recognized as he worked for numerous record labels. One record label where he worked at was called Stiff Records, where he made one of his iconic pieces that was for Cabaret Voltaire. Neville also worked for a well-known magazine company called The Face, where he made numerous pieces. Then Brody made a book called The Graphic Language of Neville, which became one of the best selling graphic design books. Eventually in 1994 was a founder of the Research Studios Network. Overall Brodys style is different from others. His use of type and color is intriguing and always draws attention to the pieces. Many people look to Brody’s work as inspiration when they create their own pieces.
