You have probably seen his work before. It could have been on Holden’s The Inheritors, on a few other Border Community records, or while queuing for the toilet at a Hydra party with nothing to do but to stare at posters. Jack Featherstone is a designer and an artist whose practice mostly focuses on designing for music.

Pick a template

My latest project

You are about to go on an adventure, as short as the story that will be revealed to you. It will confuse, it will please. Read it carefully and question all that you see.

# **Separating your big text file into slides**

* * *

To separate your file into slides, all you need to do is add three stars * * * where you want a new slide to begin.

**If the stars are in the middle of a sentence, they won't break your document into slides. But when on a separate line, they will.**

# **Setting a background and font color for your whole presentation**

  • Jack Featherstone: To Design for Sound

  • You have probably seen his work before. It could have been on Holden’s The Inheritors, on a few other Border Community records, or while queuing for the toilet at a Hydra party with nothing to do but to stare at posters. Jack Featherstone is a designer and an artist whose practice mostly focuses on designing for music.

  • He is fully independent, and operates from a studio he shares with three friends. There is something about his practice that is easy to relate to for any struggling creative – it involves a lot of compromises and is all about finding the right balance between work that you love doing and work that pays.

  • To design for sound means to connect two entirely different things, to translate the ear for the eye. It is not easy and there is something really impure about it when not done right.

  • Last year, Featherstone completed his biggest work yet. He was approached by Border Community, who he has been working with for over 4 years now, to art direct James Holden’s The Inheritors.
