Hipgnosis, the designers who changed the record sleeve

Anton Corbijn, known for his work as a photographer and director of music videos, has recently directed a documentary about the record sleeves of Aubrey “Po” Powell and Storm Thorgerson, the founders of album cover design company Hipgnosis. Hipgnosis created iconic album artwork for bands like Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin during the 60s and 70s. The documentary features interviews with musicians such as Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason and Paul McCartney, and explores the creative genius of Powell and Thorgerson. Corbijn brings a fresh perspective to the project, emphasizing the importance of album covers in a digital age where their significance has diminished.
