Another fantastic Adelaide designer, Pat Mehbrei’s site features some fantastic work produced at local firm Mash (a good chance to see some more of their work not on their site) as well as some of his excellent designs for the AGDA Agenda newsletter.
I stumbled across the site of Adelaide designer Frank Aloi this morning, it features a lot of nice work, some especially impressive packaging.
It hasn’t been a great year either musically or for standout album cover designs. As the year draws to a close, lots of sites are beginning to list their best designs for 2009, here are some local releases whose designs really stood out to me over the last 12 months.
