I found this interview that Simon told us about incredibly interesting as he took his design inspiration from things around him, which means all of his designs are not only successful for the bands, but also very personal to him. The interview can be viewed HERE.

OUGD406 Peter Saville Research (Studio Brief One)
Simon told us about a graphic designer that is incredibly famous that is invited by Secret 7 every year to submit artwork. His name is Peter Saville and he is well known for his sleeve designs for incredibly successful artists, such as Joy Division. This design is incredibly successful and was probably the first album design of its time not to feature the artists name on the sleeve. It's incredibly successful, however simple as he literally just inverted an image that Joy Division gave him.
