Looking at visual inspiration, including the deconstructed type by Joseph Beuys, and the style of distressed album art often seen in alternative music, for example the designs created by Hugo Sundqvist for music recorded by the band Refused.
The visual texture of the designs reflect the type of music they make – loud, political and energetic punk rock.
Creating background textures
I started to experiment with some hand painted textures, created using acrylic paint and a palette knife or dry paintbrush, which could potentially be used as a background for some of my final designs.
Peer session 01/07/22
In the session, we talked about the need to define the key terms in relation to the research question each of us are exploring, within the context of the critical report. So for my project, it would be useful to clarify what I mean by “cultural” values and to make a point of specifying what I would define as an independent music venue.
