Design by Nick Egan
Born in London, Nick attended The Watford College of Art & Design. It helped him shape a visual language with which he gave form to iconic Punk Rock imagery. Still in school, he designed sleeves for (then emerging, now historic) bands: The Clash & The Ramones. His first hit cover became 'Searching for the Young Soul Rebels' by Dexy's Midnight Runners. Collaborations with Malcom McLaren, led to the artwork for Bow Wow Wow's 'See Jungle'; #10 in 'The 100 Best Album Covers' (Dorling Kindersley Publishing, 1999). He designed McLaren's releases: 'Duck Rock' & 'Fans', as well as the Sex Pistols 'Filthy Lucre Live.' Nick designed artwork for the top bands of the era. Graphic Design studies refer specifically to his work. To measure his reach: estimate the amount of the public who bought albums (during this period & since) from The Sex Pistols, Psychedelic Furs, The Clash, Iggy Pop, Inxs, Bob Dylan, Book of Love, The Cult, The Pretenders, Kylie Minogue, Belinda Carlisle, The New York Dollsthe list goes on. Egan also worked with fashion's Vivienne Westwood on her 'Worlds End' line and art directed her shows in Paris & London. Egan helped shape the punk aesthetic & has earned distinction in both Rock-n-Roll imagery & fashion culture all the way from The Sex Pistols to the present.
