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.
