Farrow's latest for the Pet Shop Boys
The artwork and packaging for Disco Four, a collection of remixes by the Pet Shop Boys (featuring songs by The Killers, David Bowie and Yoko Ono) has been designed and art directed by Farrow, employing the photographic talents of John Ross who is well-known for working with coloured lights and neon. The album cover features a number "4" made with four fluorescent lighting units.
Farrow felt that as the album featured artists other than the Pet Shop Boys, a photograph of Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe was inappropriate so, instead, the number "4" from the title became the focus. Each of the inner sleeves to the album feature the same numeral, with an additional bulb switched off, counting down until all of the lights are out on side four. The colour scheme is deliberately neutral (white lights photographed on a white floor), the only hues coming from the word "DISCO" in the title.
Gone. Lights out.
Not really folks. Here they are back on again – on the slipcase for the CD. Nice isn't it?
its so minimal its hardly even there. i think thats a good thing.
farrow like always... something quick and simple, he knows perfectly people will pay for his work ;)
As usual, Farrow set the example many others try to reach.
It's nice, it would be good to see the studio push themselves a bit more though.
it's great, i'ts so simple and no need more...
is font used for Fundamental unique type for PSB latest works or re-designed from 'Tszar'?
Perfect! ...just... perfect!
These photos perfectly continue the theme of the Pet Shop Boys tour posters .Very minimal and classy .
John Pawson would be impressed!
Lovely, very minimal and stylish as always :)
clean sharp and minimal.fits perfectly.
Pet Shop Boys rules. Both their music and art are well done.
just to say as being top psb for 24 years...farrow you work is still fabby love your art. your the four pet shop boy as im third xxxxxxx take care psb forever xx
i find hard to understand why a design like this gets so much praise among the (most probably) british posters of this blog... i like other minimal stuff farrow did for other groups like orbital (the middle of nowhere) and deep dish (junk science), but this psb thing is just dull, underdeveloped design.
I LOOOOOOOOVE the pics!!
Veri editorial, hihi
Farrow as usual made an excellent artwork, very simple and clear. Awesome!!

I agree, well said. Very good website.
Didnt Farrow do the Zoot Woman artwork as well?
either way, bit much to get praise for a 2nd hand bastardisation of Dan Flavin.
