7 Inches of Secrets

In Uncategorized on June 16, 2012 at 23:27

I’m pre-scribbling this blog with lipstick because of a lack of modern technology. It’s been some time since I was regularly updating the blog thanks to real life and its unfortunate habit of getting in the way.

Early this year I heard about @Secret7s – a wonderful idea which offered artists and musicians the chance to collaborate to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust. Artists could design a cover for a selected song from one of seven bands – the only rule was to use no band names/song titles, leaving the cover a mystery.

700 covers were then printed and went on sale between the 18th and 22ndof April at Idea Generation Gallery in Shoreditch. The event was a great success – visit the website to see more of that: http://www.secret-7.com/

Above are three covers I designed for DJ Shadow, CSS and Ben Howard, no longer a secret of course and happy in their new homes I hope.
