Style Wars DVD redesign

Derrick Lin


Nice album redesign by Alex Goose.

This is a redesign for the dvd packaging of “Style Wars.” It’s a documentary about the birth of graffiti in New York in 1982 and how it contributed to the rise of hip-hop culture in the late 80’s. My concept was to convey the feeling of the time period through color and texture. The black and white photography symbolizes the grit and bleak tone of the project housing complexes in NY. The color symbolizes the hope and positivity that hip-hop brought to the community.
