Dear BiG members,

We are thrilled to announce that our special guest for this meeting is Professor George Hardie, renowned graphic designer, illustrator and educator. This will take place in the Brighton University Gallery which is currently showing a retrospective exhibition of work by George Hardie. George will introduce the show and then take questions so this is an exclusive opportunity to take a close look at the exhibition and to find out more from George about his experience as an illustrator working in the industry for over 40 years.



George Hardie is the artist behind some of the most iconic pop and rock album covers of the 20th Century including Pink Floyd's 'Dark side of the Moon' and Led Zeppelin’s debut album. A graphic designer, illustrator and educator, trained at St Martin’s and the Royal College of Art, Hardie worked as a designer/illustrator for more than 40 years, making illustrations for clients around the world.
