Found Sound – various artists

January 2018

Artwork for a limited edition 2CD compilation housed in a DVD case for Touched Music for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Inspired by the album's title, I began designing with the concept of radio waves, thinking of interesting ways in which sound is used to explore and discover (such as sonar and x-rays). I wanted to keep the design minimal but engaging and experimented extensively with how abstract the typography could be. The final image subtly hides the title within the soundwaves emanating from the centre in a way that isn't immediately obvious on first sight (find the sound, seek it out). The graphic on the cover is the same size and position as the CDs inside.

You have to squint to read the type, a concept inspired by the album title
Artist and track listing is hidden behind each disc
Quotes on the back cover embody this release and the whole concept of Touched Music
The CD on body design continues the minimal theme

The CD sold out not long after release but digital is available from the Touched Music Bandcamp page. Also see my design for Found Sound 2 and Found Sound 3.
