Stanley Donwood is best known for his collaboration with Radiohead, having produced the artwork for the bands album and single record sleeves since 1994, when he designed the artwork for ‘My Iron Lung’. Since then he has gone on to produce artwork for Radiohead’s ‘The Bends’(1995), ‘OK Computer’(1997), ‘Kid A’(2000), ‘Amnesiac’(2001), ‘Hail To The Thief’(2003) and all the associated singles, posters, websites and official merchandise.

His fondness to explore and question society, sexuality, war, conformity and politics, are usually the subjects for his artwork. Donwood’s artistic flair has earned him a number of accolades which he is generally reluctant to mention; and has in 2001 won a Grammy along with Doktor Tchock for best Packaging/Artwork for the Special Edition of Amnesiac.
