Director, Photographer & Designer |
Hugh Brown has been doing music packaging for a long time as an art director, photographer, and designer. Long enough for him to have done cassettes, 45s, LPs, CDs, box sets and long boxes, but not long enough to have done 8-tracks or 78s. He was once Creative Director of Rhino Records, the most successful archival and reissue label in the world, where he got to do many elaborate packages, some of which won awards, and many of which done without artist “input,” seeing as how they were dead. One of his proudest moments was for his second place finish in the “Design a chair for Barbie” Competition, sponsored by Vitra Design Museum, Metropolis Magazine, Mattell and W, not because of the second-place finish, but because the entry caused a fist fight among the judges.
