To celebrate a century of releases, Plus 8 has put together an epic compilation that spans its influential 20-year history. The label organised an artwork competition in which the winners would have their art on the cover of the album or assigned to each track of the album. We had to reinterpret one of the Plus8 logos used throughout the years by the label in our own way. I chose their most recent logo.
I was happy to be announced that i was one of the winners and amazed when i saw that my art was being used as the front image of the cover.
Moreover after choosing the reinterpreted logo as part of their new anniversary identity Plus8 asked me to try and design some proposals for their vinyl labels and webicons for the release and for the individual tracks on it. They liked them and the releases for 2010 featured the designs.
The web icons for digital purchases featured an intricate binary numbering system.
