12 inch is a geometric print named after the 45 rpm 12 inch records that music singles were once and still are released on. 12 inch records and 45 rpm gives better audio quality than 7 inch and 33⅓ rpm vinyl records. Dj's still use records along with collectors and music fans. In recent years computer software and digital technologies have significantly improved and records are generally less common although still sought after. Older forms of recording are an improved technology however harder to distribute and more expensive (analog recording, tape & vinyl). Clipping occurs with waveforms (WAV, Mp3) using digital recording technologies. In terms of design it's an example of figure-ground gestalt principles (colour, contrast, size, position, focus) and is a vivid, bright coloured print with sense of movement. The movement and blur effect is created with the use of transparent and differently sized/coloured circles scaled inwards towards the centre point of the print. The 45 circles relative position becomes closer in towards the centre of the print and further apart towards the edges. The centre circle (white & purple) lines become finer towards the outer rim and thicker towards its centre. Overall 12 inch is a modern print created with reference to the history and technologies of music with underlying design principles at play. This print contains a large amount of white space to assist it being visually balanced within an A-Format aspect ratio.
