The redesign of these record covers is part of the book project "Redesign 30,50" in the subject "Typography" in the 3rd semester of my design studies. The original cover were selected randomly digging through a record rack in a secondhand store. One exception is the album by Loyle Carner, it was the only record I included in the selection intentionally. This record has been with me throughout this work. The themes by which the 12 covers were redesigned again and again, are defined by the chapters in the book. Each redesign is made of fragments taken from its original cover.

Original Covers

Font 1.0

The next chapters derive the new design from the original lettering of the covers. In this chapter, if you look closely, you can see individual details of the letters. Only two colors were used for each cover, which were also derived from the original. 

Font 2.0

In this chapter, the lettering of the originals was further abstracted and all details were removed. Only outlines are still visible. The colors were again derived from the original cover. 

Font 4.0

The forms become more abstract. Hardly recognizable, but still the basis for the visual language, is still the original lettering. Here you can see outlines which are staggered to create a rhythm. 


Detached from the writing, this chapter deals with the color combinations of the record covers. Edges of the record show discoloration on the exterior of older covers. The circles in the center represent this effect in abstract form in the following designs. 


What you see in these designs is simply music. The shapes are visually translated sound waves, created by colored water on a speaker.
