Back in the day when CDs were huge, the most exciting thing to do, besides play the album back to back till your ears bled was to open the jewel case, take the album artwork out and read the booklet back to back.
Ever wondered about who designs the album cover and artwork?
Stanley Donwood was a name I didn’t recognise instantly, but I did recognise some of his work.
Stanley Donwood is an artist that has worked with Radiohead since 1994 designing their album covers and associated artwork. Luckily, you can walk through 25+ years of the man’s work at Semi-permanent in Sydney in an exhibition called The Panic Office. There are literally thousands of artwork pieces from albums such as Amnesiac, Hail to the Thief, In Rainbows, Kid A, OK Computer and The King of Limbs with some unseen pieces and a lot of Donwood’s personal paintings, drawings and prints.
The exhibition is open now at Carriageworks till 6 June 2015
Using one of Stanley Donwood’s artwork as inspiration, I ‘ve done a style up. Woot! What do you think?xxLD
Sooooooooo crazy legs is back at it. I got these totes awesome stockings the other day…and yes sometimes I think it helps to match your bag with your shoes, no crime in this. So what’s a gal to do while armed with said awesomeness? Go and hang out with her ole buddy polyvore that’s what!So here’s how I styled these puppies. I also saw the be-a-utiful dress the other day and had to do something with it. I loved the hint of orange so mixed in some red as well as velvet textures of the blazer. In fact I think this is all pretty damn tactile!! Remember that bit in Get him to the Greek with the fur wall? Uh huh, maybe not as much of a tactile experience as that but it popped into my head while thinking of the textures in this set. And Russell Brand cracks me ups. 🙂 Oh and lastly for you typophiles out there, you like the sexy typography??? Moi aussi. Find herexx LD
