Cocteau Twins

Universal Music approached me to design the forthcoming boxset for the Cocteau Twins and their releases on the Fontana label, spanning two studio releases alongside two extra discs of sessions, rarities and bonus tracks.

The Cocteau Twins are synonymous with visual pioneers such as Vaughan Oliver and the label 4AD so being able to create something in-keeping with their legacy while producing something fresh was a challenge I truly loved.

I created a disc style that followed the vintage design of the Fontana label, adjusting colour schemes between the studio releases and bonus discs. I also followed the Cocteau’s mantra of very natural and surreal imagery for the covers of the bonus wallets and main box packaging.

With very limited visual resources I designed a 24 page booklet including rare imagery from singles, EPs, posters and editorial adverts.
