Pantone 333c

My previous post got me thinking about the Police. . . and the cover I designed for Danny Quatrochi's 1986 photo collection, Police Confidential.

Amazon Dot Calm

Watching the news just now I saw a story about last night's Rainforest Foundation benefit at Carnegie Hall. At one point the organization's funky, tribal-looking "R" logo appeared on screen. At that moment I remembered that I had drawn it. That was back in 1989 when Sting and Trudie Styler founded the organizaion. I don't remember how we came to do the logo, but my old studio Manhattan Design was working on a logo and some album package designs for Sting's Panagea Records at that time. Probably we just threw it in.
