The Orb - Little Fluffy Clouds

12" (Front) 

Yet another classic one with this single from 1990 on Big Life. The orb had a major success and impact on defining the Ambient House style with their first single "A Huge Ever Growing Pulsating Brain That Rules From The Centre Of The Ultraworld". The second single was to be an even more impactful one, with this ultra melodic ambient balad.
The interesting point here in term of design is that from the very first record, Designer republic built them a rich visual style. With a logo, once again, but also with great uses and negative space in their lay-out, and of typography : look at the way they transformed "Clouds" into a cryptic (alien-like?) and catchy graphic shape. And  look at the Remix word with its exagerated 70'-like forms that the thin grey line makes surprisingly elegant...
