Peter Saville on Richard Hamilton

'Sexy, mass-produced, disposable, big business, glamorous – that made a very big impression on me'

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 Richard Hamilton and told us why this 'godfather of pop art' was such an inspiration to him as a young designer and how he sees Hamilton’s Toaster as a ‘blueprint’ for his own career.
