Text Block (95)

Tags: research file

Bold and iconic conceptual packaging for Beck's eleventh studio album, Modern Guilt. Created for Interscope Records. Mario's concepts were re-appropriated for the tour in 2008.

The font preserves the rustic elements of unpolished wood, further heightened by the blocky shapes and shelf-like composition. The only peculiarity seems to be the break between the letters of the word "MODERN". Compositionally, it seems rather lacklustre, but the font is highly successful and uses the wood element to its full potential.
