Eddie Squires (1940-1995)

Eddie Squires worked as a designer at Warner & Co. from 1963-1993, and in 1971 he was promoted to the position of chief designer. In 1965, Squires and other in-house designers introduced themed collections, and these collections earned Warner a reputation for producing innovative, contemporary designs alongside the traditional designs for which it had been known. Pop art was especially influential in his designs of the 1960s and 70s, though he was known for his offbeat designs throughout his career.
