CD Cover design principles
In 1934, a young Swedish designer Oscar Reutersvärd invented an “incredible shape” (impossible figure) theory, and that was the first time a series of shapes is designed to the theory of “visual + Art + Mathematics” binding. His first masterpiece is the “three-dimensional links triangle -Penrose Triangle”. In the past, this is an impossible figure theory and design. This absolutely broke the conservative thinking of the society. Oscar Reutersvärd the designer actually want to express this theory: “The impossible becomes possible!” IMPOSSIBLE is POSSIBLE to break the pattern of human conservative thinking!. His great design theory / concept continues to affect many politicians, thinkers, psychologists, designers, architects, etc., to jointly promote the significance of this positive energy!
The CD Cover designer Monosketcher was inspired by the great theory by Oscar Reutersvärd. Using dayDream logo as a blueprint, a link shape of impossible figure was created. This design was a perfect match for dayDream’s moto of “dare to realize dreams; making the impossible daydreams possible!”. Besides, the logo cycle link also represent “people” who is living in the cycle, which you may also consider as “God ” in helping you, inspire you and encourage you to complete the impossible task. Pattern is simple, significant!
