Growing up in my teens my friends would play a lot of Pixies, at the time I only really like two or three songs. I came into a bit later on but I always remember the album work. That grungy photo collage effect. When we got the invite for Typo London one of the first names I saw talking was Vaughan Oliver, at that point I knew I had to go.
Vaughan Oliver started in design at Newcastle Polytechnic (now Newcastle University) he soon went into design music sleeves and album artwork. He was a really interesting guy and his works is even better.
At Typo he siad that The music sleeve should represent the music - Listen, Watch what you’re designing - music is social. He was also encouraging to be open to happy accidents.
