The Designer - Vaughan Oliver
Born: Sedgefield, County Durham, England, 12 September 1957. After graduating from the Newcastle-upon-Tyne Polytechnic, Oliver worked in the packaging design studios at Benchmark and Michael Peters and Partners in London. Occasional work for the newly formed independent record label. Began a personal graphic sojourn which continues with the label today. The label's identity was designed in 1980 and has been maintained by Oliver and his collaborators since.
Supported by Chris Bigg, their work together was credited to v23 and formalised with a partnership. Specialising in work for the music industry, their collaboration attracted clients from a broader field, including company identities for Albanian choreographer Angelin Prejlocaj, film production companies in Germany, Spain, USA and the UK, magazine design (huH, Raygun publishing), film direction and graphic design for various TV commercials (Microsoft, Sony Playstation), print advertising and promotional campaigns for fashion (L'Oreal/CSM, Alberto Aspesi-Milan, John Galliano), book design (Picador, Serpent's Tail, Instar Libri, Architectural Digest), posters for the V and A Museum and Young Vic Theatre in London, exhibition design for Vitra Shopfit.
A highly successful retrospective of Oliver's work in Nantes, France, led to further shows in Paris, Tokyo, Osaka, Los Angeles, the UK and Athens, Greece. His work has been collected for the Victoria and Albert Museum archives and is on permanent exhibition in their 20th Century Gallery. 'Vaughan Oliver: visceral pleasures', a design monograph by Rick Poynor for Booth-Clibborn Editions was published in November, 2000.
