Notes Metal is a magnet for interesting design. I’m particularly enamoured of this work. Perhaps you’ll immediately spot the incident behind the imagery here. It took me a while to do so which probably makes its unsettling nature all the more striking. Even to those more observant than I, I think the subject combined with the lustrous treatment is impressive. Add to that the stillness of the imagery and the sheer noisiness of Celeste’s music and the design achieves its full force. One caveat: I wasn’t able to reproduce the muted nature of the colours properly, no matter what I tried in Photoshop and Lightroom. The interplay of light, material and ink ultimately has to be experienced physically.
