(Extract) 'Graphic design in Britain achieved new levels of confidence and maturity in the 1980s and Vaughan Oliver is one of the most impressive talents to have emerged during this period. Working as a full-time, in-house designer at the independent record label 4AD, under the name 23 Envelope and more recently v23, Oliver has produced a stream of sleeves, labels, posters, postcards and other promotional material of exceptional sophistication. His close and lasting relationship with 4AD and its founder Ivo Watts-Russell (usually known simply as Ivo) has allowed him a freedom to experiment and develop his own approach that other designers would envy. For fans of the label, Oliver's cover images have become an integral part of the 4AD experience, a cult in their own right. From the abstract atmospherics of the Cocteau Twins' sleeves to the found images and high-key palette of Colourbox, Oliver's imagery has evoked the moods of the music with unerring precision.'
