Beck’s latest album by Jimmy Turrell and Steve Stacey

The British graphic design duo formed by Jimmy Turrell and Steve Stacey has created a customizable record sleeve for Beck’s new album Colors, which buyers can assemble into whatever pattern they choose.

 

Keen to reflect the album’s title visually, the London-based graphic designers devised a sleeve that is made up of layers of different colored transparencies.

 

Turrell had previously worked with Beck on a lyric video for the single Wow, which has had more than six million plays on YouTube.

Lyric videos – which are built around the lyrics of a track – have become an increasingly popular format of music video over the last few years, and Turrell has also made one to accompany the Colors single Dear Life.

Employing a similar aesthetic to the album’s cover art, it sees colorful overlays combined with scenic shots of built-up cities and natural landscapes.

He describes his work as a combination of “handmade collage, drawing, screen-printing and painting alongside digital techniques”, and takes inspiration from old record labels, musicians and his home in London.
