Mike Coles – the legendary designer responsible for most of Killing Joke’s finest LP and single sleeve designs – has launched a new Facebook page: Mike Coles art, design, video, photography.
I am a graphic artist based in London. I design for print, make videos, take photographs, do live projections at gigs and run Malicious Damage Records.
I’ve worked in design in London since the 1970s, designing for a wide range of clients in advertising, the music business, education and corporate sectors. I can design for print, edit and design video and produce unique, specialised packaging.
I’ve worked closely with Killing Joke for 35 years and survived. I’ve designed record sleeves and made videos for The Orb, Mark Stewart, Shriekback, Headcount, High Frequency Bandwidth and many other bands. I’ve also made facilities videos for Arcadia and Debenhams in the retail sector. I could waffle on for hours but I won’t as you can see samples of my work in the photo folders on this page. Send me a message if you have a project you’d like to discuss and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
