The British graphic designer Storm Thorgerson, who was behind some of the most memorable album covers of all time (including 14 Pink Floyd albums), sadly passed away yesterday.

A childhood friend of the founding members of Pink Floyd, Thorgerson’s career began in the late 60s and his distinctive style and wry sense of humour quickly made him one of the industry’s mots recognisable graphic designers.

We had the pleasure of speaking with the unassuming artist for Issue 2 of Hunger magazine, where he recounts tale after tale of his youth and career – from being metres from The Rolling Stones at an early gig to harbouring secret desires to be a filmmaker to his shaky start in album cover design – “I had no idea what I was doing at all.”

“I have an outdated mantra, which is, doing it for real,” he recalls. And that he certainly did.
