Lecture 2: Vaughan Oliver
“A lecture of a British graphic designer”.
A British graphic designer called Vaughan Oliver gave a lecture, on the 18th of January at 9:30. Vaughan is a British graphic designer based in Epsom, South of London. Vaughan is most noted for his work with graphic design studios 23 Envelope and v23. He studied at college in the year 1976 – 1977. He also gave lectures in Barnsley and Barcelona. In 1980 he meets a guy at a gig, and was offered a full time job at Pixles.
Vaughan told us he was never a fan of Typography, and in his opinion typography destroys illustrations.
Vaughan Oliver had a desire for both music and design, and got into record design. He worked artist designers and photographers to design graphic materials. I found this really encouraging how he worked with different designers and photographers to design a final outcome. It shows working as a team can make something different, with new techniques merged together.
