WHO
Neville Brody, born in London 23 April 1957. As a teenager he was highly influenced by the “punk movement”, Dadaism and the work of Sebastiao Salgado and Man Ray according to Wozencroft (2011). Neville Brody is a well-rounded graphic designer that has not just focused on one area in the design world but all areas of design thus resulted in the world branding him as a world famous anti-traditional graphic designer. Brody studied at the Hornsey School of Art and at the London College of Printing. Brody was extremely rebellious and enjoyed pushing the boundaries. Following the rebellious and radical views of punk Brody was almost expelled from the college for using the Queen's head sideways on a postage stamp design. This ironically reflects his work today as a graphics designer, typographer and art director.

WHAT
Brody is known for his work on The Face magazine (1981–1986) and Arena magazine (1987–1990). It was his work on magazines that firmly founded his reputation as one of the world’s leading graphic designers. His artistic input to The Face completely revolutionised the way in which designers and readers approach the medium. Through Brody’s highly innovative ideas with typefaces in design, he won much public attention. This then opened doors into digital type design. His passion in the area of typography manifests itself today in such projects as FUSE, a regularly published collection of experimental typefaces and posters. Research Studios (n.d.) This challenges the boundaries between typography and graphic design. His work has been commissioned by major organisations such as Greenpeace, Japanese companies Men’s Bigi and Parco, the Dutch Postal Service, the German cable channel Premiere and Austria’s ORF TV channel.
