Talenthouse: Design artwork for The Cure

Secret 7″ is an annual event that combines music and art for a good cause. We take 7 tracks from 7 of the best-known musicians around and press each one 100 times to 7″ vinyl. We then invite creatives from around the world to interpret the tracks in their own style, resulting in a one-of-a-kind sleeve for every 7”. The creatives are made up of famous names through to gems we unearth through artwork submitted to us here on our website.

In this challenge, The Cure have selected the track ‘Friday I’m In Love’ and are inviting creatives to interpret the song, however they please, via an original piece of seven inch artwork. This is an incredible opportunity for aspiring artists and designers to collaborate with one of the world’s most loved bands, to have their artwork seen by millions, be exhibited alongside established artists and in the process, raise valuable funds for Teenage Cancer Trust.

45 designs will be selected and printed on a Secret 7″ vinyl sleeve which will be sold and exhibited in a gallery in East London in the week leading up to the Record Store Day on April 21st 2012.

On the last day of the exhibition one copy of each vinyl will be sold in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust.

Each winner will also receive:
• A signed copy of their Secret 7″ vinyl sleeve
• Exposure and recognition for their artwork on a website dedicated to the winning designs
