Artefact

Original Artwork
Peter Saville
1981

From the, 'Use Hearing Protection: FAC 1 - 50/40’ exhibition at Chelsea Space: Peter Saville's original artwork for the (then new) November 1981 Factory logo. By chance, the industrial artifacts that make up the logo also spell out the initials of 'Factory Communications Limited': the 'F' being the vertically positioned vernier caliper; the 'C' the cog rotated clockwise through 90 degrees; and the 'L' the vertical axis/top of the anvil.
