Secret 7″

Posted in Collaborations by Type Tasting on April 21, 2012

Secret 7″ is an exciting project combining music and art, all in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust. Organiser Kevin King explains that “the project set out to rekindle some of the excitement for vinyl sleeve art in the digital era by exploring how a track would be interpreted by an array of brilliant artists. And raise a load of cash for Teenage Cancer Trust in the process.”

I was on the ‘crack team’ of designers creating secret record sleeves for the project. They’ve been exhibited at the Idea Generation Gallery all week and finally went on sale today to coincide with Record Store Day. Mine has been sold (there’s the empty space in the second photo) and after all the secrecy I can now reveal which one it is.

I still have my records from years ago (some from before my time) by Alice Cooper, the Cars, David Bowie – the limited edition pop-up covers and crazy coloured vinyl were always my favourites. I especially loved the 3D covers and incorporated this into my Secret 7″ sleeve so that when the butterflies are ‘popped-up’ the brightly coloured inner sleeve is revealed.
