About

Peter Saville works as a designer and artist, and is the Creative Director of the City of Manchester. It was in Manchester, while working at Factory Records, that he produced iconic record sleeve designs for bands like Joy Division and New Order. He visited Tate Britain to look at a new display of work by ‘Godfather of Pop art’ Richard Hamilton and told us how one of Hamilton’s works called Toaster became a ‘blueprint’ for his own career.
