The Attik has used the work of photographer Michael Banks on a new drum and bass compilation album, Total Science. The image of a record turn-table on its side, mirrors the rhythmic structure of the music. ‘The design had to be dynamic, innovative and sophisticated – it had to be cutting edge because that’s the way we’ve made our name,’ says The Attik creative director Simon Needham.
The design for the logo to mark Britain’s forthcoming presidency of the European Union was created by Newell and Sorrell. The consultancy sourced 32 members of the EU between 8- and 11-years-old who drew the stars during a one-day workshop at the group’s offices in July. ‘We took the children’s artwork and produced the final version from it,’ says Newell and Sorrell director John Simmons. Britain’s presidency begins on 1 January. See Comment, page 11.
