Collectors of old 7-inch records will welcome the 45 Spinna designed by Thought. Developed by typographer Swifty and product designer Andrew Forkes, the record centre has been created for DJs and record collectors to hang around the neck, so that it will not go missing during DJ sets. Swifty – known for his work with record labels Talkin’ Loud and Mo’ Wax – met freelance designer Forkes – who has worked with Ideo – on the Acid Jazz scene. ‘You do 2D, I do 3D, let’s see what happens,’ says Andrew Forkes about their collaboration. The 45 Spinna is available on-line at www.swifty.co.uk.
