Born UK, 1944.
Hardie studied graphic design at St Martin's and the Royal College of Art. In the 70's he designed many legendary record covers with Hipgnosis. He has worked as a designer/illustrator for some 44 years and is commissioned internationally to solve problems and make illustrations for a variety of clients (and in fourteen countries to date.)
His work primarily involves ideas that are carefully composed and crafted into graphic art. He has made and self- published a number of books which he explains as 'graphics without clients' and describes as 'going amateur'. George is a member of the Alliance Graphique Internationale (International Secretary 2007-2010), Professor of Graphic Design at the University of Brighton and a Royal Designer for Industry. In 2006 he was invited by AGDA to make a lecture tour of Australia and was a visiting professor at Nagoya University of Arts.
He has either taught, lectured and/or run workshops at many UK institutions, AGIdeas Melbourne, Auckland, Amiens, Barcelona, Bologna, Copenhagen, Chicago, Guangzhou, Helsinki, Nagoya, Oslo, Parsons New York, Seoul, Urbino, Venice and Warsaw.
