WHO IS GEORGE HARDIE?
George Hardie is an English graphic designer, illustrator and educator, best known for his work producing cover art for the albums
of rock musicians and bands with the British art design group Hipgnosis. After attending St Martin’s and the Royal College of Art

at the University of Brighton's Faculty of Arts. In 1994, Hardie became a member of the Alliance Graphique Internationale,
for which he now serves as International Secretary.
 
THE BRIEF:
The task was to come up with a poster to communicate the day and person (in this case George) that is giving the talk.

AND THE FINAL PIECE(S)
:
With George's unique style, bold shapes, perspective structures and retro colour pallette, a series of four pieces was produced as a result.
The four designs were placed as parts of one piece around our studio.
