Most famous as a member of Throbbing Gristle and Coil, Peter Christopherson was at one time a partner in Hipgnosis. During his time with the agency, he was responsible for the design and artwork for Peter Gabriel’s first three solo albums. Strikingly minimal in execution, his designs are disturbing and highly memorable images of isolation, anger and pain. They’re as powerful today as when they were first published between 1977 and 1980 and remain personal favourites.
Throbbing Gristle’s website reports that he died peacefully in his sleep.
