“Album Graphics documents Nicolas Lobo’s temporary engagement with the Go-Go scene. For a year, Lobo worked as a complete outsider, offering free graphic design services to Go-Go bands and promoters. Because of the informal nature of Go-Go recording and distribution, the graphic identity of Go-Go is spread across a variety of mediums, from T-shirts and Twitter page layouts to jewel box sized .jpg files and animated .gif files culled from VHS tapes. Lobo’s attempts to produce album covers, concert flyers, myspace layouts and other graphic designs were met with varying levels of success and acceptance by the Go-Go scene. The results of his efforts, which marry Lobo’s signature scribbling with some version of the visual language native to the Go-Go scene, along with chat room threads and emails generated during the design process, are the contents of this book. Part hyper-extended liner notes for a non-existent album, part ethnographic coffee table book gone awry, “album graphics” settles in a third place: neither of the Go-Go scene nor entirely outside of it.”
Album Graphics is the third volume in [NAME] Publications’ Miami Artists Series.
