Design and music have long gone hand in hand. The album artwork is the first thing anyone will see, and if you get it right, it can really transform the music. Inspired by some interestingly designed covers by Tycho, a musician/designer, we decided to collate some of our favourite album covers of all time and explain what makes them so special.
Tycho’s combination of design and music might well be the perfect pairing. Combining his musicality with his knack for design, he has created some very interesting album artwork for his music. His ambient, upbeat music works in tandem with the bold colours and harsh edges of this geometric design and HEKKTA thinks he has hit the right note. His designs are simple yet effective and as with all great album covers, they are distinctive.
