Spring Creative has designed Obsessive Records’ Solar Spectrums album sleeve, which is released on 21 May. The ‘chillout’ CD, mixed by DJ Chris Coco, features a light-themed cover in a move away from more traditional chillout imagery such as a frozen object or a soft armchair, according to Spring director Gavin Krasner. ‘We wanted to evoke an inspiring late-night, post-club mood,’ he says. Spring has created a Solar Spectrums logo for the release and ‘fattened up’ the logotype in anticipation of the CD crossing over into mainstream, says Krasner. Solar Spectrums is scheduled to become an on-going series. ‘The presence of strong branding is vital for customer recognition,’ adds Krasner.
