Classic albums as you've never seen them before

Matt Booth (opens in new tab) is one of the most inventive designers around. From his glowing skull (opens in new tab) and his butterfly print (opens in new tab) to his animal locking (opens in new tab) series, he always provides a fresh twist on design that we can't help but admire. And that's why we just had to share his latest project with you.

Average Albums (opens in new tab) takes iconic record covers (opens in new tab), as well as a few of Matt's personal favourites, and creates a colour representation by averaging the colours of each row. It's interesting to see which ones are still recognisable - we were able to gauge a few but struggled with some!

The series includes albums by the likes of Grace Jones, David Bowie (opens in new tab), De La Soul, The Beastie Boys and The Beatles. The colour-averaging gives them a completely new look that could even be said to be an improvement on a few selections.
