Michael Wrycraft’s digital collage Bluebirds, which was chosen as a Series 6 winner and landed on a beer bottle, was originally meant for a different type of packaging altogether.

Wrycraft, who lives in Toronto and is renowned for his work as a designer of album covers, explains: “Every label design that I have ever sent in to Collective Arts, of which two have won [Wrycraft’s Snakeheart was a Series 2 winner], come from my ‘reject pile,’” Wrycraft says. “They were ideas for albums that got rejected, or a variation on an idea that was used for an album. Bluebirds was a completely different color variation of a cover that I designed for the minimalist composer John Cage, for a recording called Bird Cage.
