Central Station Design is a Mancunian design company usually associated with Factory Records and the Madchester scene of the early 1990s. The company created album cover artwork and posters for Factory artists, especially the Happy Mondays. Their design for the Happy Mondays' Madchester Rave On E.P. in late 1989 became the iconic logo for the movement. Central Station are two brothers called Matt and Pat Carroll together with Karen Jackson. The Carrolls are cousins of Shaun and Paul Ryder of the Happy Mondays.
Central Station had their first large scale retrospective exhibition at Richard Goodall Gallery in Manchester, England in July 2008. It encompassed work from throughout their career and offered for the first time the chance to buy silk screen and pigment prints in signed and numbered editions of their works including the Fac Off and Madchester designs.
