Brighton-based Red Design has created the cover for INXS’s Greatest Hits album, which is released this week by Mercury Records. Red Design partner Ed Templeton says the consultancy was briefed to feature the band, but without using a photographic style because of the death of frontman Michael Hutchence. The solution was to use an illustrative approach, he says.
