The very sad news today that Storm Thorgerson passed away, age 69, having been ill for some time.
One of the original Cambridge crew of friends, Storm became of the most sought after graphic designers particular in the music industry. From Hipgnosis through to Storm Studios, his work will live on to be enjoyed by us all.
Storm designed the cover for The Dark Side Of The Moon (then drawn by Hipgnosis designer George Hardie) in response to Rick Wright’s request for “something simple and dramatic”. The prism and the refracted light will forever be part of Dark Side.
Many notes of condolence from fans today on Roger’s Facebook page.
The tolling of the iron bell. Thank you Storm for the unforgettable images.
