1. Yesterday Brian Cannon gave us graphic students a lecture on his work, centred around his iconic album art for the Verve and Oasis.
Art has been an inspiration since a young age, especially the art movements that stem from different music genres like punk rock and hip-hop. He admitted a lot of his work opportunities came by chance and luck as self-promotion wasn’t his thing. “If you maintain a high standard you will get continual work”.
Almost all of Brian’s album covers are non-digital and any photo effects are done manually in the darkroom. Before shooting with a band he would sketch out and take test shots of a scene to save time later. “Research and preparation are king”.
For the ‘Some Might Say’ cover Brian searched the country for a disused railway station and the final image uses his friends and family as models. He prefers it that way because hired models don’t have the same enthusiasm for the projects.
The Oasis logo was originally a mix of Adidas and Decca logos, but the type was later refined to be more legible.
