The exceptional logo work of Roger Dean.

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2009

Graduating from the Royal Collage of the Arts in 1968. Roger Dean’s designed the first album cover for Yes in 1971.

The subsequent work of his career, both in logo design and fantasy art set the standard for music and fantasy art, his publishing companies, Paper Tiger and Dragons Dream have in the years released some of the dopest art books across any genre, such as The Flights of Icarus. Here is a collections of highlights from his logo work but I strongly recommend spending some time on Roger Deans website and doing a Google image for his work at highest resolution.

On Deans site there is also some promising information about a sustainable village that he is designing and a film based around the album work he did with yes which looks pretty cool. Rogerdean.com

Fuck I look forward to the day when i can dedicate myself to something as cool as designing a self contained village.

Enjoy.

The classic Psygnosis logo, Roger also went on to design some classic game cover art for the company, including the dope Shadow of the Beast series, during the 8bit period when in game graphics were so basic that the cover art played such an important part of the gameplay experience.
