Parkside Gallery is proud to present the work of internationally renounced designer Malcolm Garrett. This exhibition titled: Orgasm Addict explores his visual work during the late 70s and early 80s. Immersed in popular culture Garrett worked in relation to industry design for bands such as Magazine, Duran Duran, and Simple Minds and generated the iconic cover sleeve art for the Buzzcocks 1977 single "Orgasm Addict".
Working alongside contemporaries such as Peter Saville his portfolio demonstrates how he came to be a household name within the graphic arts and punk / post punk scene. In 2003, he was named by Design Week as one of the "Top 50 people making a difference in design”and in 2015 he was one of the first 10 designers to be inducted into the inaugural ‘Design Week Hall of Fame'
Malcolm currently continues his design practice as Creative Director of IMAGES&Co, a design consultancy, who create identities and connected communications in all media channels for business, public service and the arts.
His contribution to the arts is recognised as a major influence on contemporary graphic design culture.
