I'm gathering some questions, for a forthcoming interview with Brian Cannon. If you have any questions you would like to be ask please send them into firstname.lastname@example.org.
For those of you that are unfamiliar with the name, Brian Cannon was the art director for all Oasis work from Definitely Maybe right through to The Masterplan.
Noel Gallagher approached Brian Cannon after seeing the work he had done for The Verve.
Brian formed Microdot after finishing University they were responsible not only for Oasis sleeve imagery in the 1990’s but also a wide range of promotional and merchandise material.
Two of Cannon's record sleeve designs—Definitely Maybe (#14) and The Verve's "This Is Music" (#79) — featured in Q magazine's "The Hundred Best Record Covers Of All Time" list published in 2001.
Brian has also designed record sleeves for Ash, Ruthless Rap Assassins, Suede and Super Furry Animals and more.
