Initially we were asked to design the cover for the Sting’s new album that was released to coincide with a major tour. Several designs were produced and a meeting set up with Sting at the studio in Paris. At that meeting he made a selection from the various options presented. However, at a later stage we were informed that the record company in the US wanted to design the cover inhouse. In part compensation we were then asked to create a tour programme. This in fact allowed us more freedom to design and we were happy with the end result.
