Revolving Door: Peter Saville, The Goto Artist


By Steve Delahoyde Comment


We’ve got to admit that this is probably the coolest Revolving Door we’ll ever post. We’ve just found out that Peter Saville, the guy behind Factory Records and countless Joy Division and New Order album covers, among many, many other super cool, high profile projects, has signed on as a goto guy for M&C Saatchi (London). Sounds like a pretty terrific gig, given the description in this quick press release:

“Working closely with the executive creative director, Graham Fink, Saville will work on a project basis, offering advice and critique on campaigns for various clients. However, he will not be involved in the creative process. Saville said: “I’m not going to be hands-on. Other people will be doing the work. But if I have something to offer to the evolution of the department, then I want to do it.”

Note: if you want a good rundown of Saville’s career, namely his music stuff, we found this good page with lots of info. Read away! Go!
