It just occurred to me that I had unintentionally forgotten all about them, and how could I? Amidst all the DJs/producers around the globe and the occasional but absurd categorization/genres of electronic 'dance' music, DM still remains unfazed to be pigeon-holed. Sifting through my shelf, I still hold this collection dearly. It's no surprise that iTunes unleashed the 'The Complete Depeche Mode' digital boxset 2 years ago. And with their output spanning over 20 years, it's amazing to see how they managed to pull through despite the struggles within the band.
Well, It's never too late to grab their past and present material, it's a strange love really...

An invitation to create an artwork for FL.ag #17 to commemorate World AIDS Day curated & designed by Steve Lawler. This was based on a splash page artwork I did for the Amateur website previously and it seemed very apt for this issue. Redux and tweaked in 2 colourways.

Richard Shed is one talented product designer that doesn't conform to form (pun not intended). Shown here is the Discovery door/drawer system. Produced as a door or drawer unit system, both of which use the intriguing laminated peeled corner detail as an aesthetic and functional feature. The drawer system uses the peel detail to reveal a splash of the coloured internal drawer carcass.
