INXS’s Greatest Hits album

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. The cover features ‘INXS colours’ of red and black, with an outline of the band highlighted in metallic silver to deliver quality cues. ‘INXS has such a long history and such a range of styles, that we’ve opted for design by reduction,’ Templeton says.
