After Closer Competition Result 
The lucky winner of the Peter Saville / @seditionart After Closer (Digital Edition) competition is Steve Johnson who correctly identified (along with many others) that the New York City building that inspired Saville's designs for Joy Division's Closer sleeve was the AT&T building (now the Sony Building).

After Closer [Digital Edition] by Peter Saville is presented by s[edition] which specialises in bringing digital limited edition artworks by the world’s leading artists to mobile phones, iPads, computers and television screens.

This piece, which was and originally was conceived as a limited edition screen print in 2011 for the V&A's Postmodernism exhibition, references Joy Division's transition to New Order.

A Certain Ratio

"Manchester, 1978. In the beginning there were four: Jez Kerr (bass), Martin Moscrop (guitar/trumpet), Peter Terrel (guitar/effects) and Simon Topping (vocals/trumpet). Four thin boys with a name borrowed from a Brian Eno record, the intense, drummerless quartet initially drew influence from Wire, Eno, the Velvets and Kraftwerk, and gained a manager in Anthony Wilson of Factory Records.

"May 1979 saw the release of their first ACR single, the dark All Night Party, although the sound and musicianship of the band would be transformed by the arrival of funky drummer Donald Johnson (DoJo) in August. Over the next few months the band gigged widely, often with Joy Division as part of Factory packages, and recorded demos with producer Martin Hannett as well as a Peel session. Their support slot with Talking Heads on their UK tour in December 1979 set David Byrne on a new course, and provided the compelling live half of their chic cassette package The Graveyard and the Ballroom. Post-punk, ACR now reflected the influence of Funkadelic, George Clinton, Bootsy Collins, The Bar Kays and James Brown."
