Collaboration With Passion
In 2001 I produced a batch of DVD designs for Wienerworld, starting with Sisqo - The Thong Song. The first thing was to get the Urban Edge logo designed.
Then the product would flow through and regular work followed.
In 1986 I sold my house in West Dulwich SE21, London.
The purchaser was a lady called Pauline Sutcliffe, she was the sister of Stuart Sutcliffe, the artist and bass player in John Lennons group Johnny and The Moondogs, back in 1959!
Stuart had died in 1962, having studied Painting in Hamburg State Art College, under Eduardo Paolozzi.
Later in 1987 Pauline asked me to help her launch an retrospective exhibition for Stuart.
My task was to produce a logo,an exhibition folder, post cards, a biography about Stuart,and business cards for Pauline and Mike Evans the writer of many books on the Beatles.
The famous Pop Artist Peter Blake attended and opened the exhibition with a speech.
In 1994 I was already designing many hundreds of video sleeves for Columbia Tristar Home Video. They had held back many Classic Films for re-packaging. After I designed them, I then produced a small booklet to fit inside the video box.
