Throwback Thursday – Derek Yates and Soul II Soul

A recent BBC documentary has looked at the culture of the 1980s and, specifically, the genesis of the band Soul II Soul.

WSA’s Graphic Arts Programme Leader, Derek Yates, features in the programme, talking about how he came to be their designer for their burgeoning look.
