Designer headstones

This isn’t supposed to be a morbid start to Friday but whilst having a browse over at FormFiftyFive I was completely captivated by Tony Wilson’s Headstone by Peter Saville and Ben Kelly. In time honored tradition it was three years late.

I had the great fortune to meet and chat to Tony Wilson a couple of times when he ventured down to London to visit Malcolm Garrett when I worked at AMX. I always thought he was a genuine really nice bloke, very passionate about music, design, culture and especially Manchester. He was controversial and always divided opinion, but I don’t think people can argue that he is greatly missed.

The other headstone image is of the legendary American graphic designer Paul Rand.
