Retrofied Music Covers

While most of us consume and purchase music digitally, vinyl records are still sought after by collectors and music fanatics. In response to this change in the way we experience and listen to music, designer Robert Penney has re-imagined contemporary chart-topping hits as vinyl record covers. The Australian graphic designer has reinterpreted singles like Lady Gaga’s ‘Poker Face,’ The Libertines ‘What A Waster’ and ‘Obstable 1’ by Interpol in a vintage 60s style.

The manipulations are mindful in their use of typefaces, colours and other elements emblematic of the times. Penney also grades how well the would-be covers have been preserved over time, making note of any tears he added to the sleeves. To compare his creations to other iconic covers from the 50s and 60s, Penney digitally imposes his covers onto a pile of iconic vinyl sleeves.
