For the 10th consecutive year Art Vinyl (www.artvinyl.com) has awarded “the most creative and well-designed record cover of the year”, as described at their website. The Best Art Vinyl Award of 2014 went to… Royal Blood, with sleeve illustration by Dan Hillier, hand lettering by Harry Robbins, and design by Richard Welland.
Hillier’s design was inspired on his artwork Pachamama, which was developed after a visit to Peru in which the artist sat in a ceremony with master shamans in the Amazon, according to Design Week.
The second winner was FKA Twigs’s LP1, with artwork by Jesse Kanda, and the third award went to Future Islands’s Singles, with cover art by Beth Hoeckel and design by Matt de Jong.
