That's So '90s

Just read that next year The Smashing Pumpkins plan to reissue remastered versions of Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness (1995), The Aeroplane Flies High (5 CD box set)(1996), and Adore (1998). I designed the packaging for these albums.

I still have my original SP Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. Even when I got the iPod all setup, and didn't need cd's anymore, I couldn't throw it away because the packaging was so good. I think it might be the only cd that I kept! Ha! Love your work Frank :)

Thanks for your kind words.
Just wanted to be clear that the collages were created by the illustrator John Craig under the art direction of myself and Billy Corgan.

Frank you are an inspiration, thank you for your work. I am a current Graphic Design student at PCC in Pasadena, CA. I am also a huge Pumpkins fan and have been since 91. It is cool to love one end of the pumpkins (their music, as a fan) and then be close to the other (in the learning, understanding and implementation of graphic communications).

Art is a huge part of the musical experience for me and your design/direction for the pumpkins just feels perfect.

Thank you again for inspiring me through your works.
