About Peter Saville

Peter Savilleis best known for creating the seminal designs of Factory Records' recording artists including Joy Division and New Order. His proclivity for subtle rebellion against the design status quo kept his designs on the edge throughout his career, and fans eagerly awaiting his next direction. He has always felt that "our cultural history could inform our commercial or everyday reality," and he has continued designed from this standpoint.

Creating visual communication for popular music has put him in a unique position to influence the minds of young people. Most people grow out of the designs that adorned their walls in their teens or early twenties, but Saville's work borrowed from cultural references which influenced the viewer by presenting them with an artist or typographer that they may not have been aware of. While the designer maintains that the quality of the writing and the music is what makes people keep the records adorned by his designs, he is happy that these images "create a visual influence which the recipient could take with them in their adult life."

He has often appropriated fine art images in his work while being careful treat them respectfully. Introducing these images in this way to the masses he says is, "probably the most useful thing that I've done."

Arkitip No. 0049 will be a virtual catalog of Peter's work including essays from Saville's colleagues throughout his career. It will also include two original prints from the designer in an edition of 1500. The prints will be 12 x 12 inches on 100 lb. archival stock and will sit on top of the magazine inside a custom designed box carefully encasing the magazine and prints.

After another groundbreaking year in publishing for Arkitip, we aim to end the year in style by collaborating with one of the most influential designers of our generation.

About Arkitip
Arkitip's beginnings were humble. While the magazine began with a 50 copy, hand stapled run in 1999, those first copies look more sophisticated than most other "zines" you might have considered in the same category. The covers were silk-screened on corrugated cardboard and the docutek used to replicate the black & white art in the magazine rivaled the performance of most offset printers. It had a great homemade feel that was bona fide quality. Excellence in production is still of primary importance to Arkitip today. Artists contributing to the magazine respect this, as they know their art will not be compromised in any way. Today, Arkitip is a hand numbered 4/color art book. The fact that the magazine publishes site specific work at a lower price point than what hangs on gallery walls makes it available to art collectors of all economic levels. Each issue is like an original piece of art in and of itself. The magazine's founding principles remain as they were when we began:

  • Support the arts
  • Promote freedom of expression
  • Make art affordable and accessible

Arkitip Magazine serves these principles every day by its very existence. What began as a creative project between friends has become a full fledged business and a worldwide source for groundbreaking art and design today.
