I decided to do this after watching the film ‘Control’.

The film told the story of Ian Curtis, the enigmatic singer of Joy Division whose personal, professional, and romantic troubles led him to commit suicide at the age of 23.

My aim for this design was to show that when you lose a control over almost everything, then sometimes life and death is the only thing we can take a hold of.

    Thanks for doing this. There is also a documentary called ‘Joy Division’ that is really wonderful. I just ordered a large canvas and I’m really excited to get it. I love their music and wished they would have come to the states. Thanks again, Simon.
