The first Crowded House ‘Greatest Hits’ album, Recurring Dream – The Very Best of was released in 1996 with a sleeve design that combined bass-playing founder band member Nick Seymour’s curious painting with Stylorouge graphics. It was the beginning of a long standing relationship with the band, which has resulted in us designing a dozen sleeves for them since, along with DVD packaging, animated DVD menus, TV commercials and a promo video (filmed on a charity shop super 8 camera!) for the track Everything is Good For You. In recent years the band’s Neil Finn has been recording with a number of other musicians and we were asked to create packaging for his Seven Worlds Collide album/DVD project which included performances by Johnny Marr, KT Tunstall and Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy among others. Their major career-spanning compilation The Very Very Best Of was released in four separate formats, each one with a seasonal twist on the front cover illustration.
