Twodesign’s cover artwork for rock band Slovo’s album Nommo is released this week, featuring the work of photographer Dario Mitidieri. While Mitidieri’s children of Bombay image adorns the front, an enclosed CD booklet showcases photography by band member Dave Randell taken across three continents and includes perspectives of Coney Island, New York and the Gaza Strip. The artwork reflects the album’s political content, according to Twodesign creative director Graham Peake, which questions the relationship between the Wall Street stock exchange and the developing world. The album is released on RuffLife Records.
