Worst Artwork 2017


#61

The fact this is the second forum I am on where the Kasabian has raised questions of ‘hold on, is that actually artwork?’ rather than comments of ‘it’s bad’ means it’s some next level shit.


#62

Brilliant. Pure Spinal Tap.


#63

there’s another forum?


#64

I also thought someone had mocked it up as a joke.

Didn’t think anything was likely to come close to Catastrophist or Chaosmosis this year, but this has opened up a whole new level. Sensational!


#65

I love Pumarosa and am super excited for their debut album but it’s a shame the artwork is so shit!


#66

there’s a quote from the designer on the wiki page about this album:

“I really wanted to challenge how I previously approached art direction, through the deconstruction of the graphic design tools and their known formulas — which I have used in previous works with Kasabian”, Throup told It’s Nice That. “I’m really embracing the basics of default composition, whilst creating my own default design process through doing so. I even wanted to embrace and explore the beauty of default fonts.”

Oh wow that’s special even for him


#71

Almost Drones level, and I don’t say that lightly


#72

I’d just about erased that one from my memory! Thanks for the reminder. Urgh!


#73

better or worse than this?:


#74

Never forget. Never forgive.


#75

Fantastic album though.

#77

That reminded me of a Tim Burgess album cover. A Google image search led me to this article:

Ouch.


#78

I wonder if Burgess defended his reasoning for standing in for Laverne…

Was it the cover for Oh No I Love You that you were reminded of?


#79

Yes it was.

Both look like they there were bashed out on Photoshop in under ten minutes! Also not a fan of either album title.
