Event description

Description

Please join us for a special conversation with Grammy-winning designer Hugh Brown (former Creative Director, Rhino Records) and photographer Alec Byrne accompanied by a slide show of images from Alec's new book London Rock: The Unseen Archive.

Signing to follow.

ALEC BYRNE covered the rock and roll scene in London from the mid-1960s through the mid-1970s—the height of London’s rock revolution. After sitting in storage for close to four decades, this archive was reintroduced to the world in late 2012 with an acclaimed one-night show in Los Angeles attended by more than one thousand people. Since then, Byrne's work has been featured during the 2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, exhibited at the South by Southwest music festival, and accepted into the National Portrait Gallery in London.

HUGH BROWN has been designing music packaging for a long time. Long enough to have designed cassettes and long boxes but not long enough to have done 78s. For many years he was the Creative Director of Rhino Records, the best known and most successful archival and reissue label in the world. His groundbreaking and whimsical designs, have led to 11 packaging/design Grammy nominations and three wins. He has won over 50 other awards from Print Magazine, I.D. Magazine, Communication Arts, AIGA, and many others. He has consistently raised the bar for product packaging in the entertainment industry.
