Music and design – what a virtuous circle of influence

I enjoyed reading the article on Mark Farrow and was particularly interested in the influence music had in his work (Profile, DW 12 November).

After studying graphic design I left my job for a career in music. Our agent shared an office with Farrow’s company. The walls were adorned with Deconstruction and Pet Shop Boys artwork, and projects like the Atlantic Bar and Grill. While hanging around doing nothing, as we seemed to do a lot, I’d wander about, taking it all in. To this day, years after returning to design, with the musical dreams unfulfilled, Farrow’s work remains the main influence on my own style. I thank him for that.

The bugger looks younger now than he did then, too.
