Peter Saville in 2022

“Personally, I am now not keen on the now. With a broader sense of application have come the marketing people. And they use all of what has been achieved by artists and designers like Barney [Bubbles] to seduce, corrupt and entice.

This appropriation into business of visual work of Barney’s standard is depressing. I think I speak for him as well as myself when I say: ‘We just wanted things to be better.’ By which I mean we wanted to share our enthusiasm for what was possible with our contemporaries. Having that requisitioned by marketing to make a product look cool is saddening.”
