Storm Thorgerson (born 1944) is an English graphic designer, known for his work for rock bands including Pink Floyd, 10cc, Muse, Genesis and Peter Gabriel. He was a key member of the British graphic art group Hipgnosis with Aubrey ‘Po’ Powell, and designed many of their most famous single and album covers. Perhaps Storm’s most famous design is for The Dark Side of the Moon, which has been called one of the greatest album covers of all time.
Hipgnosis went on to create hundreds of classic album covers over the next fifteen years. Peter Gabriel was one of their favourite clients and commissioned them to create the art for his first three solo albums all titled ‘Peter Gabriel’ and known by fans as ‘Car’, ‘Scratch’ and ‘Melt’.
