These neon signs and lights were in an exhibition in Brighton at the No Walls gallery. There’s something about neon lights and colours that draws people in and in the simple white walled gallery, the neon lights completely took over the room and pulled you in. The letterforms and lights were collected from all around and put together to create quite and surreal experience in this small gallery.
My inspiration for the album cover came from the different places where the band were situated whilst the album was being written: London, Manchester, New York and Jamaica. I wanted the cover to represent what was going on in all the different cities at the time the album was being produced. The album included three double sided vinyl records so the end product was a triple album where three 12″ records would fit.
To get inspiration for these posters, I sat in a cafe for a couple of hours and eavesdropped to different customer’s conversations. Most noise was overlapping each other so the idea behind these posters was the layers of talking, noise and laughter. I tried to convey the friendly sense of atmosphere I felt whilst sitting in this cafe.
