FORA.tv Speaker - George Hardy
Following his design education at the Royal College of Art, George Hardie formed NTA studios with designers Bush Hollyhead and Malcolm Harrison. During the 1970s he often collaborated with the design group Hipgnosis as both designer and illustrator on album sleeves, the most famous of which were for albums by Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin.
In the past few decades Hardie has produced an impressive body of work that is always highly individual and for which he has received a great number of awards, including seven D&AD silver awards, the Pantone European Award and the Swiss Art Directors Club silver award. His work has been exhibited widely and featured in a recent show at the Pentagram Gallery.
Since 1980, Hardie has also lectured and taught at the University of Brighton, where he is now a professor teaching the MA course in sequential design and illustration, which focuses on visual narratives and story-telling. A member (and former UK president) of the distinguished graphic design body, Alliance Graphic International, Hardie continues to work on many international commissions including postage stamps for the Royal Mail and on his own experimental publications.
