The <a href="http://design.org/graphic-design" target="design">design</a> was inspired by Inception and draws on the environments and themes of "vast, maze-like landscapes and complex impossible patterns mirroring the intricate networks of the mind." The album also references the style of angular, German industrial architecture.</p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="620" height="450" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2011/06/27/stuartford_inception_1.jpg?1309200597" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-featured"> <div class="field-label">Featured:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Not Featured </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://design.org/blog/inception-inspired-hans-zimmer-album-artwork-stuart-ford" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://design.org/blog/inception-inspired-hans-zimmer-album-artwork-stuart-ford#comments album design graphic Movie music uk Mon, 27 Jun 2011 18:55:21 +0000 jessicapatterson 2945 at http://design.org Rock Sessions: Playful Album Designs http://design.org/blog/rock-sessions-playful-album-designs <p><a href="http://www.focadesign.com.br/">FOCAdesign</a> illustrated these <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/focadesign/sets/72157625353888184/">Rock Sessions</a> designs of some favorite bands.
