Gorillaz art up for Designer of the Year Award

Jamie Hewlett, co-creator of the Gorillaz, is on the shortlist of the Design Museum’s Designer Of The Year prize. Hewlett created the visual identity of the virtual band as part of his collaboration with Albarn, who wanted to create the ultimate manufactured band, ie one that didn’t really exist.

Hewlett is up for the £25,000 prize against humanitarian designer Cameron Sinclair, furniture designer Tom Dixon, and the design team behind The Guardian newspaper. All four’s work will be displayed at the Design Museum from 4 Mar to 18 Jun.
