Eliza Brownjohn, daughter of US graphic design great Robert Brownjohn, has created a website dedicated to her father’s work.
Robert Brownjohn was born in the US in 1925. After studying under Bauhaus co-founder Lázló Moholy-Nagy, he worked on title sequences for Bond films, album covers for Columbia Records and identity and campaign work for clients including Pepsi-Cola and Kit-Kat. He died in 1970 at the age of 44.
The site features famous Brownjohn projects including the titles for From Russia With Love, the Rolling Stones’ Let It Bleed cover and moving graphics for Midland Bank, as well as less well-known work such as cigarette packaging and identities for architects and shopping centres.
We speak to Eliza about setting up the site and preserving her father’s graphic legacy.
