Think Tank Media will be featured in the "Collector's Edition: Innovative Packaging and Graphic" book this year.
The publication showcases innovative graphic design and packaging within the music, book and magazine industries, all carefully selected by the author Stuart Tolley and published by Thames and Hudson, one of the world's great publishers of illustrated books on art, architecture, design, fashion, archaeology and history. Think Tank has contributed a number of projects alongside works by Bjork, Alec Soth, Mario Testino, Dinos Chapman and David Bowie, to name just a few.
Two standout projects are:
"Amok", Atoms for Peace, is an absolutely stunning, apocalyptic design from the brilliant Stanley Donwood, the deluxe concertina CD was manufactured on reverse board with silver foil on both sides, and the triple-gatefold LP on reverse board with huge foil coverage and blind debossing.
Amon Tobin deluxe limited edition box set, designed by Oscar & Ewan, is presented in a beautiful, high quality, bolt fastened mechanical 'press'. Packed inside are 6 x 10" vinyl, 7 x CD, 2 x DVD and several posters. Most of the material was unreleased and almost none of it has been available on a physical format before.
The "Collector's Edition" is a must have for every design and packaging lover, no excuses accepted.
The book is available now and an exhibition of the works will be hosted from August 19th to September 6th at the KK outlet in London.
