New Or­der - Old charm

ArabAd - - DESIGN -

When Joy Di­vi­sion evolved into New Or­der, Sav­ille kept de­sign­ing some of the most eye-catch­ing re­leases. Each ex­am­ple is a jour­ney into time, a post-mod­ernistic re-eval­u­a­tion of artis­tic styles. ‘Move­ment’ is a homage to Ital­ian fu­tur­ism. ‘Cer­e­mony’ re­flects the time­less grief in­scribed on an­cient tomb­stones. ‘Power, Cor­rup­tion and Lies’ is a jux­ta­po­si­tion be­tween the old and the new. A 19th cen­tury oil paint­ing by Fantin-la­tour is flanked by in­dus­trial colour cod­ing. Flow­ers il­lus­trate the Machi­avel­lian think­ing in ev­ery­day life. A scary thought for Valen­tine's Day.
