Jamie Reid (1947-2023}

Jamie Reid, the really good graphic designer who did a lot of work for the Sex Pistols, has died

I think he was groundbreaking and talented, definitely legit. His work had a nice rough edge but was really tight and evocative.

And I like his thoughts here:

“Radical ideas will always get appropriated by the mainstream. A lot of it is to do with the fact that the establishment and the people in authority actually lack the ability to be creative. They rob everything they can.”

“That’s why,” he added, “you have to keep moving on to new things.”
