Neville Brody has created the identity for Punk London, a year-long series of events in the capital celebrating punk and its influence on today’s culture. According to the event organisers, 2016 marks the 40th anniversary of punk in London. Brody says: “To be able to take a current view on a vital era which had so much creative impact and influence as well as forming many of my own ideas and approaches, has been a revelation, seeing so much contemporary relevancy within its remit and intent.”
The programme will look at how modern day design, art, fashion, film, music, politics and identity has been informed by the punk movement of the 70s. Organisations that will be hosting or delivering events throughout the year include the British Fashion Council, British Film Institute, British Library, Design Museum, Institute of Contemporary Arts, Museum of London, The Photographers’ Gallery, Rough Trade, PYMCA, Premier and On|Off, Roundhouse and Universal Music Catalogue.
