NYC design studio The Collected Works supplied artwork path, identification, packaging, print, movement and internet design for a not too long ago accomplished compilation album in tribute to The Grateful Lifeless. Aaron and Bryce Dessner of The Nationwide introduced collectively their favourite musicians to compose 59 tracks; in the long run the mission turned a 5 CD set, and a 10 LP field set with all proceeds donated to HIV/AIDS awareness and support although the Pink Sizzling Group.
The design system, says The Collected Works accomplice Justin Colt, “is a contemporary reinterpretation of the Lifeless’s iconography, lyrics and associated imagery. All through the identification we use a mixture of oil and water textures (referencing backing visuals of reside Grateful Lifeless exhibits), and hand drawn illustrations (created by the extremely proficient Gary Panter). This creates an expandable system that works throughout all of the packaging–and can also be versatile sufficient to adapt to internet, movement and attire design.” Colt provides, playfully, that “the imagery might or might not require the viewer to be on LSD to get the complete impact. However you didn’t hear that from us.”
