The 1975: Drake and Burgess-Johnson create Neon Signs for the Manchester band

This Must Be My Dream and She Lays Down are just some of the many musical treats you can expect on Manchester band The 1975's second album. Entitled 'I Like It When You Sleep for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It', it follows a platinum-selling debut and has received much attention from critics and media alike.

To create the visuals for the new album, The 1975 called upon London-based designer, art director and typographer Samuel Burgess-Johnson and American photographer and designer David Drake to craft typographic, atmospheric imagery for each of the songs.

Offering pink neon signs, spelling out the song titles and set against various backdrops – the series was shot in different locations to evoke the sentiment of each tune and drips in 1970s nostalgia with a hint of California cool. Beautiful work from Burgess-Johnson and Drake, who share an impressive client list including Universal, Song and Polydor.
