Peter Saville

Peter Hook & Peter Saville, together with Ben Kelly & Miranda Sawyer talks about the Hacienda & the Adidas-Y3 Hacienda collab sneakers.

"When I give a talk in Tokyo or wherever and people come up and say, 'I want to become a graphic designer because of your work', I apologise. That spirit of independent thinking in Factory or, for instance, at Yohji Yamamoto was the exception and never the rule. I am the worst type of model for a design career." Having said that, Peter has nevertheless influenced and has made a significant contribution to the industry. Saville's strategy has always been to consider both the product and its market, and, like any good art director, to look for a visual solution that works for both. What sets him apart, however, is the breadth of his frame of visual reference, which takes in everything from fine art and architecture to fashion and film.

His website is still under progress, we shall see more of it soon.
