Lurid pinks and greens combined with ‘distressed’ type and ‘raucous’ live photography are all in the mix of Insect’s sleeve design for 21st Century Fix, the debut release from The House of Fix. ‘The concept behind the artwork and packaging is based on the cut ‘n’ paste attitude of the music, which fuses punk, electro, hip-hop, rock, techno and just about everything else,’ says Insect designer Luke Davies. The production, released on 11 August by Tresor Records, includes a six-page digi-pack, a spot-gloss lamination, two 12-page booklets and two DayGlo CD labels.
