COL­ORS AL­BUM COVER by Jimmy Tur­rell and Steve Stacey www.pro­ba­tion­a­gency.com www.jim­my­tur­rell.com

Mu­si­cian Beck’s lat­est al­bum Col­ors sports a cus­tomis­able record sleeve cre­ated by de­sign­ers Jimmy Tur­rell and Steve Stacey. Formed from lay­ers of dif­fer­ent die-cut coloured trans­paren­cies, the cover can be as­sem­bled into a be­spoke sleeve by lis­ten­ers.

“We de­cided on a route of colour and shape – sim­ple and strong,” ex­plains Tur­rell, who was art di­rec­tor and video di­rec­tor on the project. “We tried not to set too many re­stric­tions on where we went with this in the ini­tial stages. We started look­ing at a whole range of things for in­spi­ra­tion – child­hood games like Ludo and Con­nect 4, old VHS and cas­sette pack­ag­ing, all the way through to artists like Brid­get Ri­ley and Piet Mon­drian, and Beck was re­ally open to us ex­per­i­ment­ing. See­ing it all out there – and the pos­i­tive feed­back it’s been get­ting – is re­ally sat­is­fy­ing.”
