Punk rock disrupted the music scene in the 1970’s, creating a unique challenge for emerging designers like Neville Brody, Malcolm Garrett and Peter Saville to establish new design lexicons. During his partnership with Peter Saville, Brett Wickens realized how the power of instinctive design could sell products. Today, Brett has brought these instincts to bear by designing and leading a successful and award-winning program to help Adobe Systems emotionally reconnect with its biggest audience, creative professionals.
