Peter Saville is a designer of unique influence on visual culture.

For over twenty-five years he has produced essential innovations in the field of communications, significantly affecting the interplay between art and design. As a co-founder of Factory, the legendary independent record label, he created a series of iconic album covers for the bands Joy Division and New Order.

Saville has also worked extensively in the fashion and art sectors. He was at the forefront of developments in conceptual design, and exhibits his work in museums and art galleries internationally.

Saville is now playing a leading strategic role in the economic regeneration and cultural renaissance of his home city of Manchester as consultant creative director to Manchester City Council.

As such, Peter works closely with our marketing co-ordination unit on projects that require a join-up approach or where the City is being represented as one brand to the wider world.
