If like me, you are having a hard time getting your head ’round David Bowie’s shocking passing then this just might be the memento for you:
Design studio Barnbrook were lucky enough to have worked with Bowie on his last five albums, producing the controversial art work for The Next Day, and one of my personal favourite covers, the iconoclastic Heathen. To honour their precious working relationship Barnbrook have decided to release the design elements from the art work for Blackstar, (font included) for personal, not for profit use. You can find it all here: Blackstar Art Barnbrook
I’m particularly fond of the design element below, found directly under the star on the Blackstar album cover. To me this clearly spells the word ‘Bowie’ in cryptic broken star shapes. So subliminal and clever.
Surely I’m not the only one imagining a Bowie tribute tattoo? Will you be downloading the Blackstar * design elements? If so, what will you make?
