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.
Launch night event, 13th June
The opening night will consist of a private view of the Microdot – The ‘90s Exhibition (attendees will also be able to browse the incredible BME collection too), Microdot founder Brian Cannon will deliver a talk accompanied by key images from the ‘90s artwork. He will also be joined by Brian Garcia, owner of the world’s biggest Oasis memorabilia collection who is flying in specially from Texas for a Q&A.
