Invisible Creature Interview (and Tricks)

Our pal Gareth points us to a great interview with Don Clark of the two brother design firm Invisible Creature. An interesting and inspiring piece from the always good, often excellent, Grain Edit. I will admit, I am a sucker for artists sharing techniques and views of their workspace.

If you could redesign one album cover, what would it be?
This is actually a hard one, since there were so many great album covers done in the mid-century. I hope this counts, but I guess the first thing that comes to mind is AC/DC’s cover for ‘Powerage’ in 1978. C’mon … we can all agree that cover could use a makeover. Wires for hands? Really?

I think this is a good idea. Re-issue classic albums with new graphics and commentary from artists. To an extent, I suppose it has already been done like the old timey compilations with Crumb covers.
