NMC Recordings: student project with Central Saint Martins

Author: Colin | Published: 7/6/12

Here’s a heads up for a student/industry project that’s just reached fruition at my place of employment. I like the illustrations and would be interested to see the finished products with typography.

In December last year we briefed the BA (Hons) Graphic Design students on the project and what they needed to consider when creating a CD cover, and invited Huw Watkins, Dai Fujikura, Sam Hayden and Helen Grime to talk about their music and compositional process to help inspire their designs. The final designs for the 12 releases in this series were selected by a judging panel including composer Colin Matthews, designer Vaughan Oliver and Guardian/ BBC Radio 3 journalist Tom Service.

  1. The illustrations are really good (the students did a great job), but the final covers (illustrations+typography) are somewhat mediocre.
    The typography is too formal, dull, tasteless.

    Also, the “Debut Discs” logo is horrid.
