Putting a hex on everything
01 February 2002

Having fun with hexagons, and the endless possibilities of a tessellating motif. Developing the Mute Records look on promos and samplers.

These are covers for some of the promos and quarterly samplers, that Mute distributed throughout the music industry.

I’d come up with a look that offered plenty of possibilities for graphic interpretation. This systematic approach suited Mute well, their recording artists comprised largely of acts making electronic music — all beats and bleeps.

There’s a lot of electronica, but among the others there’s Nick Cave; he’s a fellow Brightonian, I saw him recently looking for something in the baking goods aisle of my local Waitrose.
