Eighties pop band Scritti Politti is returning with its first album for a decade. Anomie & Bonhomie, with an ad campaign, CD and record covers developed by London design group Form, will be released this month. Green Gartside, the creative force behind the band, was inspired by the work of artist John Baldesari to look at small objects on a large scale. He asked Form to look at objects in a similar way, resulting in close-up shots of items such as a plectrum, batteries and bread tags. The graphic design on each of these items is subtly altered to feature the name of the band or one of the album tracks, while remaining true to the original theme.
