Project Thirty Three Album Covers

July 21st, 2010







These album covers are from a collection scanned and archived by Jive Time Records, a Seattle based store specializing in used vinyl. The fact that designers could get away with such simple designs just blows me away. It seems to me that it’s getting harder and harder to get away with designing so simply.

    I think thats because we try to impress each other (other designers) too much, and add things to our work that are not necessary, thereby creating a trend of over-design. Some of the most powerful work i have seen is also the most simple.
