RIP Album Cover Designer Strom Thorgerson

Friday, April 19th, 2013

We're huge fans of the album packaging, and we've just lost one of the medium's all-time great designers. Storm Thorgerson, the English graphic designer who created Pink Floyd's iconic album covers, passed away Thursday at age 70. His bold, surrealist covers include Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, and many more, and he also put his stamp on design for Led Zeppelin, Catherine Wheel, the Cranberries, Muse, and more. Take a look at some of his work.
