Graphic designers from across the world have longed to be included among the shortlist firm the Brit Insurance Design Awards, an annual awards ceremony hosted by the Design Museum that celebrates the most innovative, interesting an inventive designs in the categories of architecture, fashion, transportation, interactivity, products, furniture and graphic design.
Among this year''s nominees for best graphic design are two unique choices that may cause a stir in not just the design community, but the music community as well.
Album art for the Pet Show Boys'' latest album "Yes" and Icelandic songstress Bjork''s live album "Voltaic: Songs From the Volta Tour" have been selected as finalists in the graphic arts category.
For "Yes," the Pet Shop Boys reconnected with London-based studio Farrow Design who crafted a simplistic cover bearing a multicolored check mark utilizing a bright spectrum of colors reminiscent of a child''s construction paper book.
Parisian design firm M/M crafted for Voltaic a unique image compiling a scene from Bjork''s current world tour juxtaposed behind a psychedelic teardrop rarely seen outside of a black light poster with an internal pattern that repeats in an Escher-like loop.
These designs, along with dozens of other entrants reflecting their own particular discipline, will be on display at the Design Museum beginning in mid-February and running until June 6.
