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.

* PunnyName: "Hipgnosis" = hypnosis.[[note]]And pronounced the same way. It's a portmanteau of "hip" (trendy) and "gnosis" (pronounced "no-sis"; knowledge, especially religious or mystical).[//note]]

''Saucerful'' turned out so well that Hipgnosis was offered more work by the Floyd's label and booking agent. Throughout TheSeventies, the studio's reputation grew as they were commissioned by some of the biggest names in British music (see the list below); along with artist Creator/RogerDean, they helped create the look of ProgressiveRock and HeavyMetal. Their work is notable for its use of {{surrealism}}; in those pre-Photoshop days, their enigmatic images had to be created in RealLife, or through retouching and other trickery, instead of clicking on a mouse. Hipgnosis is also remembered for the stories their vivid images told, often using ScienceFiction tropes. (Speaking of sci-fi, Hipgnosis designed covers for Creator/DouglasAdams' ''Radio/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'' albums [[http://hipgnosiscovers.com/douglasadams.html here]] and Norman Spinrad's novel ''Literature/BugJackBarron'' [[http://hipgnosiscovers.com/normanspinrad.html here]]).
