After Hipgnosis, Storm Thorgerson formed [=STd=] (Storm Thorgerson Design), then [=StormStudios=], and continued doing album covers (and eventually CD booklets); although he mostly designed for younger bands like Music/{{Muse}}, Music/BiffyClyro, Music/CatherineWheel and Music/TheCranberries, he still worked on most Music/PinkFloyd-related projects. He died in 2013, and [[AuthorExistenceFailure he was active until the very end]]. ([=StormStudios=] has [[http://us2.campaign-archive2.com/?u=30adec2edf9e7e995a3ac90d0&id=c1255d04bf&e=a725bb81ce announced]] that, in accordance with Thorgerson's wishes, they will continue on without him.) Aubrey Powell is currently a film director and has co-written two books with Thorgerson. Peter Christopherson continued making music (with Music/ThrobbingGristle, and later with Psychic TV and Music/{{Coil}}), and also directed music videos and TV commercials, until his death in 2010. In 2014 and 2015, Powell, who owns the Hipgnosis name, revived it for Pink Floyd's GrandFinale ''Music/TheEndlessRiver'' and David Gilmour's solo album ''Rattle That Lock''.

** Music/PinkFloyd's ''[[http://hipgnosiscovers.com/pinkfloyd/anicepair.html A Nice Pair]]'' feature several: "Frog in the throat", "Laughing all the way to the bank", "Fork in the road", etc. (Not to mention the innuendo-laden [[spoiler:"A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush"]].)

And of course, the title gets one; one of the images is of a topless busty woman and a pear.

Storm and Po became so busy that in 1974, they promoted their assistant Peter Christopherson to a full-time third member; Christopherson remained with Hipgnosis even after he joined Music/ThrobbingGristle. However, by the mid-1970s, times were changing. Prog and metal were out, PunkRock was in, and with the lone exception of Music/{{XTC}}, the new crop of bands that followed in punk's wake had little use for Hipgnosis' elaborate imagery. Although the studio continued into TheEighties, by 1983 they'd transformed themslves into a MusicVideo company called Greenback Films, which eventually dissolved due to CreativeDifferences.
