Peter Saville / Colorcalm poster competition - the result 
The winner of the recent competition in association with Colorcalm is Sean Gogarty, whose complete saying is:

"Peter Saville was the 'Best Graphic Designer Working Today' (Creative Review's Peer Poll, 2002 and 2003). Now he is the most comforting lounging apparatus for professionals cutting back on clubbing."

Thanks to everyone else who entered the competition.

The Colorcalm: by Design dvd features ambient works from three of the world's legendary designers Peter Saville, John Maeda and Irma Boom, set to music by New Order, Ryuichi Sakamoto and Michael Nyman and is still available to buy from The Conran Shop (New York, London, Tokyo & Paris), Amazon.com & Colorcalm.com.

Biting Tongues

In the grey days of late 1970s post-punk Manchester, youth culture was a serious affair: every musical performance was measured mostly by the conviction of its delivery. The term 'New Wave' opened up free vistas where acquired skills could once again be exercised after punk's monochrome blur. It could be applied to anything from a James 'Blood' Ulmer record to the latest Throbbing Gristle release, Magazine to Swell Maps. Move outside that terrain into Sun Ra, Parliament, Frank Sinatra and Martin Denny, and your options were suddenly without limit...

Then came Tony Wilson's Factory Club (at the Russell Club in Hulme) offering an open invitation to experiment that was taken up when Ken Hollings, Howard Walmsley, Eddie Sherwood and a few others decided to make some noise to accompany their 16mm silent epic Biting Tongues. A further performance followed a few weeks later, when Colin Seddon and Graham Massey disbanded their Post Natals project and joined up. The film itself, a flashing series of negative images, became a memory; the name remained.
