Elevator Poetry

As part of its online festival, Online08, Litfest and Flax, brought together a group of performance poets to work together to "remix" their work. The results were recorded and I designed an EP cover to present it online.

The cover is based loosely on the 1977 cover for Elvis Costello's My Aim is True and has the Flax identity, the flower with the publication number, in the tear.

To see the cover in its full glory including the back – and of course, listen to the tracks– on the Litfest website click here.
