Microdot – The ‘90s Exhibition

Event Ended

In 1990 Brian Cannon, an unknown graphic designer not long out of college, established the fledgling creative agency Microdot.

Four years later, through sheer determination, a catalogue of errors and a maverick way of working Microdot had become the most sought after music related artwork team in the world.

From humble beginnings in a Lancashire bedroom studio the accreditation ‘Sleeve design by Microdot’ now adorns over 75 million records worldwide.

Microdot – The ‘90s showcases the halcyon years when the team’s creative output was at its zenith – featuring works for clients such as Oasis, The Verve, Suede, Cast, Ash, Super Furry Animals and many more.

Also on display will be out-takes, work-in-progress sketches and original props used on the Oasis sleeves.

Our shop will be selling a range of Microdot prints and an exclusive A2 exhibition print designed by Brian Cannon.

 

Exhibition runs from 14th June to 31st August. 
A general entry ticket is required.
