Paul Kelly’s Stolen Apples cover might not instantly grab you by the short and curleys and say “BUY ME!” it does compliment the album perfectly and the work that has gone into the rest of the pack is a testiment to the hard work Debaser put into all their projects.
Sharks = cool Zombies = cooler Zombie Sharks: off the cool radar That’s how I would have pitched this single artwork to the band. Normally I’d feature the album and then the single artwork but it was this Zombie shark I saw on Neatorama that caught my attention.
Wow another Beck album so soon. I’ve been so busy lately a street poster had to alert me to the fact this was released. Initially I thought they had forgotten to commission a cover for the album and just used what was lying around for the cover of Modern Guilt. It’s boring, uninspired and so [...]
The smaller the budget the bigger the restrictions, and the smarter you have to be to solve the client’s problem. This design solution for Murmur Records from Bunch is just that. Iconic, visually arresting and cheap to produce. These debut releases from Murmur are bound to be collectors items.
I always feel the urge to fake the fact I haven’t heard of these artists in a feeble attempt to sound knowledgeable and up to date. But sadly all I can say is I really like the cover art. It fits perfect with the music while being original and visually striking. It’s also campaignable. I [...]

Up the Irons! You have to hand it to Iron Maiden and their dedication to their mascot Eddie. He’s gotta be second to [...]
I initially though the packaging for ALB’s album was of a retro sandwhich iron. Yum! I love toasted sandwhiches but Charlie from Discograph informed me it was actually a retro 45 record player called a “Univox Mange-Disque” manufactured from 1975-1980. This made a lot more sense than having the CD package based of a toaster. [...]
It’s a testiment to the Rolling Stones that the original Rolled Gold (the best of) was released over 30 years ago. This version has been titled Rolled Gold+ and you have to thank someone for not calling in Rolled Gold 2.0 which was probably mentioned in a meeting. Thankfully this version of the album not [...]
