Andie Airfix talks about Led Zeppelin

Andie Airfix has created some of the most memorable music designs of the last 30 years working with THE ROLLING STONES, METALLICA, DEF LEPPARD, DEAD OR ALIVE, AC/DC, LED ZEPPELIN & PAUL McCARTNEY, to name a few. Now, for the first time, he's spilling the beans. This will be a unique opportunity to hear first-hand how iconic designs are created for legendary music stars in the inspirational, unpredictable and sometimes utterly insane world of Pop Music and Rock'n'Roll.

As part of Brighton Fringe (starting on 4th May 2013) the Airfix Lounge celebrates Andie Airfix's art and design work with an exhibition and 11 ticketed Talks inspired by the huge success of Airfix's blog ‘B*B G€LD*F STOLE MY SUNGLASSES' www.andieairfix.wordpress.com.

If anyone has been there, done that and got the t-shirt it's 'legendary graphic designer' (thank you Popbitch) Andie Airfix. In fact he designed the t-shirt, the album sleeve, the singles, the posters, the tour programme - everything!

Highly entertaining, often hilarious and possibly libellous, the AIRFIX LOUNGE is an inspiration to both designers and music fans alike.

The free exhibition (May 6th - 25th) will feature iconic Airfix designs, unpublished work, original art, roughs, typography & logo designs and will evolve and expand over the three weeks as we delve deeper and deeper into the Airfix Archives.

Also available – LIMITED EDITION PRINTS signed by Andie Airfix (including 2 NEW Metallica editions), vintage Airfix t-shirts and original gift items for Rock'n'Rollers.

Andie Airfix will be talking about working with Robert Plant and Jimmy Page. He has designed the covers for Page/Plant's Unledded, Led Zeppelin's BBC Sessions, Early Days, Latter Days and 2003's DVD. plus Robert Plant's Dreamleand and Sixty Six to Timbuktu.
