Stranger Things Vol 2 LP Wins Best Package Design At Communication Arts’ 58th Annual Design Competition!

Lakeshore Records congratulates Team Stranger Things and Lakeshore Art Director John Bergin on their Best Design in the Package Design category win at this year’s Communication Arts design competition!  One hundred and fifty-one projects were selected by a jury of creative professionals; 3,877 entries were submitted to the competition.

The selected projects will be reproduced in the September/October 2017 issue of Communication Arts. More than 30,000 copies of the issue will be distributed worldwide assuring important exposure to the creators and publishers of these award-winning projects.

“The goal of the LP design was to capture the 1980s aesthetic of the show, characterized by hand-drawn artwork, glowing graphic elements, and quintessential fonts of the ’80s. Heavy use of black and empty space was employed to heighten the feeling of isolation and danger experienced by the show’s protagonist, Eleven, while lost in the The Upside Down. Smokey textured vinyl also recalls the dark alternate dimension.” – John Bergin

The cultural phenomenon that is Stranger Things is now streaming exclusively on Netflix.  Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein’s  double GRAMMY®-nominated score on the Stranger Things Vol. 1 & Vol. 2 soundtrack vinyl (Clear with Black Smoke SOLD OUT) is available now in other vinyl variants at the Lakeshore webshop here.
