  • 03/11/13--12:10: Packaging: Design Overkill?
  • Now that anyone can basically steal any bit of music they want, how does the record industry make up for falling sales. Among other things, the answer is to make outlandish, super deluxe versions. You could probably find all this music online but you wouldn’t get the extras, like books, t-shirts, a working amp or [...]

    David Bowie turned 66 on January 8th and released his first LP in 10 years on March 13th – a cause for celebration. One of the things that make it so special is the cover – a simple rework of his 1977 LP, Heroes - or so it would seem. This type of artwork might [...]

  • Kirk Damarais is an artist, graphic designers, and apparently all around good egg working out of LA.

    The Station to Station Tour began in Feb. 1976 in support of the album of the same name, and lasted until May of the same year. Bowie had been living on ‘cocaine, peppers and milk’  for the making of the album but seemed a bit more fit, and less insane, for the tour. All black [...]

    When it comes to logo design, there’s purely great, occasionally clever and more often then not absolutely horrendous.
