Dirty Hospital on MRR

Have just completed artwork for the forthcoming release on Mighty Robot Recordings, by electro act Dirty Hospital. Here’s just a teaser image for now, as the 12″ isn’t due out for a few weeks.

As you can see, i went literal with this one: E coli proved to be the best looking bug around (MRSA and C Diff just don’t have that presence for the limelight) and I persuaded a few microbes to pose for the camera. Remember, don’t have nightmares …

The esteemed design bookshop, Magma, opened a new outlet in summer 2007. Unlike the original store just up the road, this was designed to showcase the lines which complimented the brand’s original core book, dvd & t-shirt sales – namely designer products and crafts.

I’ve always had a soft spot for Magma, and this store caught my eye for its innovative use of corrugated board fixtures and shelving. For everything. The whole store interior is infinitely modular, modernist, and recyclable: it also looks great. Forget expensive wood, glass or metalwork, this is testament to clean simple and functional design, paired with good lighting. Thanks to the staff for allowing me to shoot inside the store and capture this innovative display.
