Sound design: why creatives still want to design for music

Imagine if, at the end of the 20th century, you'd been asked to fill a time capsule with graphic design artefacts that evoked the spirit of the first hundred years of the modern era. What would you include? You'd throw in half a dozen classic logos, some Swiss posters and probably something from Milton Glaser, Paul Rand, or Saul Bass.

You would also include a few album covers: 20th century graphic design without album covers is like a football match without a ball - unthinkable. You'd have to include Sgt Pepper, maybe Never Mind the Bollocks, a Joy Division, Nirvana, Oasis or Blur sleeve, something from US hip-hop. Point is, you'd be spoilt for choice.
