Vaughan Oliver

One of the most influential British Graphic Designers and Typographers of his generation, Vaughan Oliver has spent more than three decades creating beautifully weird, wonderful and iconic work, helping to reinvent the approach to record sleeve design. 

Vaughan Oliver was introduced to typography when he graduated for Northumbria Design in the early 80s and began designing packaging and drinks labels. He is probably most notorious for his work with record label 4AD whilst working with graphic design studios ‘23 Envelope’ and ‘v23’ between 1982 and 1998.
