Design Inspiration: Minimalist Album Covers by Nick Barclay

Here at LITTLE Agency we love getting inspired by design from across the globe. Have you ever wondered what you favourite, most iconic album covers would look like when stripped back to their minimalist forms? London-born, Australian-based designer and art director Nick Barclay has.

Using his trademark style he’s produced a series of posters featuring his most treasured album covers, reimagined in bright, minimalist forms. Nicks works is intensely playful and intriguing and in the studio we’ve loved guessing which cover is which and choosing our favourites.

Nick’s work invites the viewer to play this guessing game before getting too close, as every print features the track listing, release date, artist and record label in small print as part of the design.
