OMNIBUS PRESS BUSINESS IDENTITY & BOOK DESIGN
Graphic Designer
 

 
 

CLIENT: MUSIC SALES, 1990

A revamp of the business identity for the music publisher Omnibus Press required a logo that could be applied to mass market trade paperbacks, up-market hardbacks and would suit books about rock and classical music. At the same time, the biographies and promotional graphics were now to reflect the graphic look associated with the musiciansí album covers, often using commissioned illustration and photography.

For the cover and poster image for Omnibusís 1990 catalogue (left),  the photo artist Simon Farnhell was commissioned to supply an image that summed up four decades of rock and roll, via Elvis, Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Rotten and Madonna.
