The record sleeve I designed for Secret 7″ was chosen and purchased by the lady above! I would just like to say thank you to her and to Secret 7″. Although I had a very small part in the exhibition, it has meant a lot to me to be selected. This was the first time my work has been exhibited in London and in such a great place like Somerset House! I hope this post isn’t too sentimental, but I wanted to express how grateful I am! Thank you!

Secret 7″ Private View

Last night I went to the private view of Secret 7″ at Somerset House. My record sleeve design, along with many others, is on display there until 3rd May. It was a nice night and great to have the opportunity to see all the other record sleeves. It was fun trying to guess the artists of the anonymous sleeves! The identity of the sleeve designers will be revealed after the sale day on 4th May 2015. I’m thrilled to be part of this event and it would be great if you are able to go and see it! You can preview all the record sleeves in the Secret 7″ online gallery, see if you can guess which is mine!
