Peter Saville to Re-image Kanye WestMusic // Wednesday, 18 Sep 2013
Before everyone gets all in a huffy about Kanye West and the fact that they think he is an egotistical megalomaniac, we are going to just agree to disagree with you and enjoy the fact that Mr. West has, over the course of his career, collaborated and been art directed by people like Murakami, Kaws, Morning Breath, George Condo, and now, it appears he will be working with legendary graphic artist, Peter Saville. The UK-based Saville has created some legendary work of his own, including album covers for Joy Division, Pulp, and New Order.
Saville told an audience at the Global Design Forum in London this week that he was working on a new visual identity of Mr West. Saville told Dezeen after the talk, "We're looking at ways of writing 'Kanye West.' What does 'Kanye' and 'Kanye West' look like written down?"
Well, what does it look like? Wait and see...
