Graphic designer Blam - of Print-process (opens in new tab) and Blanka (opens in new tab) - recently tapped 100 design luminaries to render Bowie’s name in a typeface of their choosing or creation. The results have been gathered onto a limited release print in anticipation of the impending 'David Bowie is (opens in new tab)' retrospective at the V&A, opening on 23 March.

The changing faces of Bowie (opens in new tab)’ poster features contributions from the likes of Pentagram (opens in new tab), Trevor Jackson (opens in new tab), Anthony Burrill (opens in new tab), Stockholm Design Lab (opens in new tab) and Wallpaper*, the fonts as stylistically eclectic as the musician they pay tribute to. The prints will be available to buy from the museum’s shop, priced at £45. Each artwork comes with a certificate and an insert with insights from the contributors on their submissions.
