The Buzzcocks 'Orgasm Addict' at Design Manchester

We were invited to contribute to an exhibition celebrating the original design of 'Orgasm Addict' by Malcolm Garrett. 

Along with other designers we submitted a graphic interpretation of the sleeve for the Buzzcocks' 1977 single, 'Orgasm Addict'.  

This is our own 'reframed' version. Take a look at the exhibition, what beautiful work!
