How can we bring attention to local classic albums at a time when people are focusing on foreign vinyls, allowing them to be collected by young music collectors (aged 21-45 years) in Malaysia?
Introducing re:cover, a design project that gave classic Malaysian albums a modern and current look - thus making it cool among the young music collectors.
For P. Ramleeâ€™s album design, we wanted to bring out the glitz and glamour he is often associated with. To do this, we chose a reflective material to represent him being constantly in the limelight. A double quaver represented his signature moustache and love for music. Finally, we kept the illustration simple, and used a monochromatic colour scheme as an homage to his movies and concert footages, which were in black and white.
The re:cover project was endorsed by the Recording Industry Association of Malaysia (RIM).
