The Designer and Art Director Brought a Handful of Classic Album Covers back to Life

Posted by Gestalten—05/2016

Album covers are an evocative form of self-expression used to tell an entire story in a single image. Brooklyn-based designer and art director Thomas John Hayes used animations to bring a handful of classic album artworks to life. Playing off covers from Stevie Wonder and Erykah Badu to New Order and the Talking Heads, the animations add an element of movement and motion to the iconic images. The resulting series develops the existing narratives, telling a familiar visual story with an exciting twist.
