Younger Brother - Storm Thorgerson - Video

Bookmark and Share

Younger Brother members Simon Posford and Benji Vaughan in the studio once again as they work on an uptempo remix of their single "Night Lead Me Astray". They also give a brief chat about what their favorite bits of equipment are.

Following that we have a video of Younger Brother's CD cover artist Storm Thorgerson.

He was a core member of the British graphic art group Hipgnosis, and came up with the designs for many of their most famous singles and album covers. Currently, he runs a design studio called StormStudios - a loose collection of very talented designers.

Storm Thorgerson's most popular designs are those for Pink Floyd. His design for "The Dark Side of the Moon" has been voted one of the greatest album covers of all time. (Designed by Thorgerson, the cover itself was the drawn by Hipgnosis designer George Hardie). Many of his creations are known for their surreal elements.

He often places objects out of their traditional settings, especially with vast spaces around them, to give them an odd appearance while highlighting their beauty. To quote Thorgerson, "I like photography because it is a reality medium, unlike drawing which is unreal. I like to mess with bend reality. Some of my works beg the question of is it real or not?"

A number of books have been devoted to surveying Storm Thorgerson's work which spans more than three decades.
I've love what he has done for Younger Brother so far so I hope the partnership continues.
