The book, “The Graphic Language of Neville Brody” and iconic British art director, Neville Brody were influential to me and to many young designers over the years.
Stumbling upon his work was a revelation. It marked the first time I’d been exposed to layout and digital typography elevated to an art form and to the rules of design brilliantly broken.
The art direction for his covers and two-page spreads for The Face and Arena were influential to art directors who drew inspiration from his work. His work has a timeless yet contemporary quality due in part to his use of mainly ultramodern san serif fonts (many of which he designed himself, i.e. Fuse foundry) and bold imagery cropped in unexpected ways.
He founded Research Studios in 1994 and continues to experiment, push boundaries and influence a new generation of designers.
2009 marked the return of Neville Brody to magazine art direction for Arena Homme+ on the magazine’s 32nd issue.
I’ve complied some recent images from the Arena+ 32nd issue and some from the past.:
