Cover Up 2016
Cover Up is the culmination of the 7” vinyl cover design project, showcasing the incredible creative work of Edinburgh College Art and Design students. Our guest band for 2016 are Noah Noah who set the students the challenge of designing the cover for their upcoming 7” single. The night will involve a headline live performance from the band, as well as their chosen winners being announced and presented their prizes by Scottish music guru and BBC Radio presenter Vic Galloway. There will also be live performances by Wylde, Posable Action Figures and Start Static.
Now in its 7th year Cover Up is a fantastic opportunity for our students to take on the artistic challenge of working directly with a client (the band). This is by far the best way to experience how to communicate, cope and deal with client requests and working to a deadline. The standard over the years has been incredibly high, and several of the bands have gone on to use the winning design, and even work further with the artist.
