Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark

Author: Colin | Published: 14/7/10

For their first album in 14 years, OMD have re-employed the services of Peter Saville, sleeve designer of the classic albums. Hopefully bodes well for the music. The sleeve looks interesting – I like the treatment of the ‘OMD’ and the strong orange. The central figure is reminiscent of a girder/subway map/roadsign. I suspect there’ll be no die-cut treatment this time round sadly.

More details on The Quietus.

Here are Saville’s previous designs for the group:
Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark
Architecture & Morality
Dazzle Ships
