NOT-SO-NEW-OBSESSION: VAUGHAN OLIVER
The above images are excerpts from “Visceral Pleasures,” a book composite of Vaughan Oliver’s music packaging and design over the past few decades.
The majority of the work included pre-dates the computer but as you go through the pages, you begin to see subtle differences. With the digital work there’s a change, not necessarily in composition or style, but in color usage, visual effects and subject matter.
Outside the interest of that shift, the book is a great collection of the work that helped define graphic design in the UK in the 1980’s — everything from minimalist design to grunge typography to the layering of elaborate textures.
Which is to say that it’s all really interesting and worth a look.
