editorial / package design

PANTS ’N’ PANTIES is a special edition box of Ian Dury and The Blockheads. It is made from two of the bands albums “New Boots and Panties” (1977) and “Mr.Love Pants” (1997), the decision two make this box out of this albums came from an interview where band member Mick Gallagher said that these two albums are the ones that represent the band, and that everything else it’s just an in between.

The box is divided in two, being one side dedicated to each of the albums. Inside are 2 CD’s - each with 4 songs and one single from the album - and 10 booklets, one for each song of the album. These booklets are an artistic and plastic interpretation, from this approach every booklet is unique, being each correspondent to a song.

Project developed with Mafalda Cintra, Marta Antunes e Inês Sobral under the discipline of Communication Design IV of the degree of Communication Design of the Faculty of Fine Arts of UL.
