When they ask you to design an artwork for a limited edition of an album, consisting of 50 floppy disk labels, why not going for 50 different artworks?
This is a very unique project, intrinsically nerdy and still extremely emotional. We worked closely with the artist transposing his concept for the album, developing the digital cover as well as the limited edition floppy labels.
“Most Beautiful Design is a tribute mini album to the excellent design of the 3.5’’ floppy disk and to the dexterous workings of audio mp3 audio. The project was conceived to be small enough to be contained on a single floppy disk, exploiting the behaviour of very low bitrate mp3 compression, its audio artefacts and nonlinearity, as an instrument and mean of composition in which low fidelity doesn’t hide, but reveals new informations.“
The album is released by the mythological independent label Mille Plateaux.
