Visualized (a conference around visualizing big data) has created a great short video interviewing designer Peter Saville, the creator of one of the most iconic Joy Divisions album covers, Unknown Pleasure. It’s fascinating to hear about the history, inspiration (the visual representation of a black hole forming) and powerful cultural impact such a unique design can have on fans.

This week’s Frandoms are by Tobin Reid, freelance designer.
