FAC586

Private client. Sleeve design, packaging design and art direction.

 

Completed 2005.

 

Titled a la a Factory Records release - with the number taken from the classic New Order track "586" - this compilation is a Factory "best of"...

 

The look is inspired by Ben Kelly's design for FAC51, the world-famous Hacienda nightclub owned by Factory and New Order...

 

The blue stripe is added to break up the monotonous pattern and lend a mysterious, vibrant feel to the look...

 

Striking a balance between the industrial monotony and very human spontaneity of the music of many of the most quintessential Factory bands.
