There are some truly iconic pieces of album art out there, and the format is synonymous with graphic design. Indeed, there are several album covers that will likely remain instantly recognisable for years (and years) to come. But it isn't often that we're blown away by the art for a soundtrack album – particularly one belonging to a video game.

The soundtrack art for 2016 indie hit Firewatch has resurfaced on Reddit this week, and users are blown away by the ingenious design. At first glance, it looks like a simple image of audio waveforms. But look a little closer, and you'll realise you're actually looking at the game's signature woodland. Like the best print ads, it's guaranteed to make you double-take.
