78 Year Old Veteran Redesigns Abbey Road Album Cover

Seventy-eight year old Rex Argent wins first prize in a competition to redesign one of 16 iconic album covers from the past 50 years…

 

The Suffolk born veteran selected The Beatles, Abbey Road as his album of choice from the shortlist and wowed the judges with his youthful and vibrant interpretation. The competition run by Alamy garnered interest from more than 500 people all keen to submit their designs and take the top spot which Mr Argent subsequently won.

The man behind the winning cover commented:

“Entering the competition was a natural choice with my years of experience and background in the field. Art and design has always fascinated me. It is a lifelong passion”.

So how does the granddaddy of design feel about advancing technology and the speed at which it moves? 

“I do try to keep up and I have seen so much change in my lifetime obviously – but it gets harder every day. Technology seems to leap forward faster and faster. I still learn every day – from all angles, even YouTube! I find it the fun part that is full of exciting surprises for the artist in me! And after all – they do say, knowledge is power and I hope to harness that power for a while yet!”

Second prize went to Ralph Tittley for Unknown Pleasures from Joy Division and third to Adrian Robinson for Doolittle by Pixies.
