Robert Beatty: Salvia Plath – The Bardo Story

Work / Graphic Design

Graphic Design: Psychedelic album artwork from designer Robert Beatty

Sure this isn’t the most conventional kind of graphic design, but when you’re creating pupil-warbling posters and vinyl artwork for bands with names like Salvia Plath then it’s probably a good thing. Robert Beatty is flying the ripped, stained flag of classic, mindbending album artwork of yore. Soft fades, strange creatures, mystic doorways, incoming clouds – you name it, Robert’s work is like the locker door of a 1970s YES fan. With new work featured in the latest Mould Map and a whole bunch of amazing artwork made for bands including his own, Robert seems to be hacking away at this niche nicely. Hack away, friend. Hack away.
