Visceral Pleasures

Interview Catalog with Vaughan Oliver

This catalog features the work of Vaughan Oliver, a British graphic designer well known for his distinct visual identities for the talent under the 4AD label. His cover design roster includes bands such as Bush, Cocteau Twins, Lush and the Pixies. The front cover was fashioned from the Pixies junior record, Doolittle, and I repurposed the original record sleeve for the back cover. I was drawn to Oliver's use of grungy texture and his abstract collage-like aesthetic, the design draws inspiration from his style while still allowing the sleeve designs to shine.
