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.
The museum will work with research studio Forensic Architecture on the installation, which is inspired by this year’s theme of “emotional states”.
