David Bowie: The greatest creative tributes from the art and design world

Following today's devastating news about David Bowie, everyone at Creative Boom wanted to do something to pay tribute to one of the most influential musicians of all time.

Constantly reinventing his style, his persona, his creativity and his music – he delighted us over many decades, from the 1960s Space Oddity-era through iconic Ziggy Stardust and the Thin White Duke to his later years as a soulful rock legend.

It seems impossible to imagine a world without Bowie. He will, without doubt, live on through his music and influence. But the reaction on social media certainly reflects how we all feel today: "He was an extraordinary artist, and a true original," tweeted The Rolling Stones... Iggy Pop remarked: "David's friendship was the light of my life. I never met such a brilliant person. He was the best there is." Madonna said: "Talented. Unique. Genius. Game Changer. The Man Who Fell to Earth. Your Spirit Lives on Forever!"

But if we had to choose one quote that perfectly summarises our feelings towards the tragic news of David Bowie's untimely death, it would be this from Simon Pegg: “If you are sad today, just remember the world is 4 billion years old and you somehow managed to exist at the same time as David Bowie.”

The impact that Bowie has had on all aspects of popular culture is unparalleled. From fashion and art to photography, literature and interiors, we owe so much to the father, husband, musician, actor, artist and fashion icon.

Here we share some of our favourite creative tributes to the man we will always know and love as David Bowie.
