A follow-up to his previously released blueprints.

Designer Paul Nicholson has shared his original sketches for the Aphex Twin logo in a continuing celebration of Selected Ambient Works 85-92’s 25th anniversary.

The drawings were part of a workbook Nicholson used between 1991 and 1993 to sketch design ideas. Though he previously shared original blueprints for the logo, these new photos show how many subtle variations he experimented with. Next up, Nicholson will cover the concept behind the cover of Selected Ambient Works Volume II.
