I've just recently completed the cover CD for one of my favourite magazines (both in terms of content and design) - The Wire. As a magazine dedicated to experimental music it gives a compilation CD away every six months called The Wire Tapper. It commisions a different designer to come up with a cover image each time. The last one was Mark Farrow so no pressure on me then.
After chatting to the magazine's art director Ben Weaver we decided to come up with something that had the feeling of an organism or cell but which still had a hard edged and element-like form.
