I came across this design studio, IWANT Design, based in London, UK whilst researching digital collage and Secret 7/vinyl covers. The design studio specialise in many different types of design, from posters to installation. All of which is documented on their website, Tumblr and Pinterest accounts.

They have such a large range of work, and different aesthetics. All of which however focus on digital art, manipulation and collage opposed to straight forward, modernist graphic design. There is such variation in just the images shown above from type based sleeves, to purely image/illustration based and then the obvious choice of type and image.

I feel really inspired by the vinyl sleeves IWANT Design have produced and this will help me generate better, and more design ideas to resolve the problem to this brief.
