The Nirvana Diary: Photographer Steve Gullick on Photographing the Legendary Band | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Graphic Design: Noncollective's second EP is a bold, hand-screened beauty

Graphic Design: Noncollective's second EP is a bold, hand-screened beauty | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Dave McFarline’s recent work for Noncollective’s second EP ticks all of those tactile boxes, utilising the hand-screen printing skills of Bob Eight Pop to produce 300 record sleeves that are all unique, thanks to the expert blending of three different inks on the screens. Aside from the vibrant colour, a very minimal use of of Futura finishes the package off with style. It’s an object you’ll be tempted to own even if you’ve no idea what the music’s all about (although it’s excellent, we assure you).

Celebrating the flyer art that helped define rave and acid house culture

Celebrating the flyer art that helped define rave and acid house culture | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Chelsea Louise Berlin’s new book Rave Art draws on her huge collection of flyers, invites, membership cards and other ephemera from the early 1980s onwards to celebrate the lo-fi visual culture which was so intrinsically linked to the UK club scene. Not only are these fascinating visual artefacts, they were also vital to the way the scene spread and partygoers communicated how, when and where the next raves would take place.
