Factory Records was founded in the UK in 1978, and went on to secure a singular place in the post-punk, new wave music landscape, producing such bands as Joy Division and New Order. They opened a branch in New York (OFNY), headed by Michael Shamberg, in 1980. "Of the several visual artists associated with Shamberg and OFNY, Weiner remains the best known, as well as the most distinctive, his minimalist typographic style adorning several sleeves and concert posters" (https://www.factorybenelux.com/m/of_factory_new_york_fbn55.html).
