Peter Saville is one of the rockstars of graphic design: Joy division, New order, Pulp are few of his 'clients'.
From his biography:
"In July 1978, Saville graduated from Manchester with a first class degree. He then undertook Factory's next major project, the sleeve for a Factory Sample. He became a founding partner in Factory Records, with Wilson, Joy Division's manager Rob Gretton and actor Alan Erasmus. This release heralded an assault on the post-punk burgeoning music scene in Manchester. The unqualified autonomy he enjoyed while working for the new label, initiated a freedom from the overt constraints of marketing, which further allowed him to experiment in the very semiotics of visual communications.... ...After the dissolution of Din Disc in 1982, Saville, along with his collaborators, the photographer Trevor Key and Brett Wickens (a Canadian design student), formed Peter Saville Associates (PSA). During these years, music industry clients were joined by institutions like the Whitechapel Art Gallery, London, the Pompidou Center, Paris, and the French Ministry of Culture, as well as fashion clients such as Yohji Yamamoto, Martin Sitbon and Jill Sander."
