“Communication should be entertaining”
Neville Brody is an internationally distinguished designer, typographer, art director and brand strategist who
is well known for breaking the boundaries and traditions in design.
Brody is the original founder of the Research Studios network and also one of the founding members of FontWorks. He works both independently and with other designers in Research Studios network on commercial and private projects.
By 1977 punk rock began to have a major effect on life in London. As a result of this, Brody’s work and motivation was impacted largely and at one point he was almost thrown out of the London College of Printing for putting the Queen’s head sideways on a postage stamp design.
His first-year thesis had been based around a comparison between Dadaism and pop art, not just Punk rock.
Brody made his name largely popular through his revolutionary work as Art Director for The Face magazine when it was first published in 1980.
Fuse 1-20 was released in January 2012. It was the celebration of 20 years of Research Network’s internationally renowned platform for experimental design and typography.
“FUSE was a project ahead of its time and is now even more vital in informing our understanding of our new digital communications space. It shows how important the need is for a constant state of experimental language. Its amazing to have this chance to re-view this vital collection of creative work for which we are delighted to partner with Tachen books.”
