As The Lights & Arcadia Art

May 13th, 2019

Ok so I’ve been doing this since 1981! And just noticed the similarities??? Hit me with a brick. It took me this long??? Was this done on purpose? Thanks, David

The band says: “A very curious observation…the original artwork for SO RED THE ROSE, and all the products for Duran Duran from 1981-1985, was done by Malcolm Garrett – hence the obvious similarities in style!

The new package for the Record Store Day version of AS THE LIGHTS GO DOWN would have been appropriated from Malcolm’s style (original designs). We would imagine the graphic designer in charge of this new release referenced all of Malcolm’s work previously related to this project and it certainly looks as if he/she took a quick look at Arcadia too!”
