Fair Play Though, In Fairness



Is there life in Irish typographical design?

Aiden’s design was inspired by Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust-era pantaloon suit designed by Freddie Burretti in 1972 and captured in the photo (left). He is among 100 artists chosen to produce typographic mark or logotype for the word Bowie for the exhibition.

The 500mm x 500mm print, entitled ‘The Changing Face of Bowie’ is available exclusively from the V&A.

The show opens on Saturday.
