It has been a long while since IdN turned its eye upon the world of music graphics, but with the continuing rise and rise of vinyl record sales, the timing couldn't be better. With examples of work from over 60 creative studios, this 160-page issue provides a welcome overview of an area that has seen a boom in creative output. Featuring record and CD sleeves, merchandise and posters work, this is a must for anyone interested in producing music graphics, or, like us, anyone who loves a beautiful record cover.
Varying paper stocks, spot varnishes and matt lamination, IdN is a beautiful design magazine from Hong Kong that looks and feels as good as it reads.
It's always great to see local design studios in IdN. In this issue Passport's work on a rebrand for techno act, Octave One is a highlight.
