The Daily Swarm reports that Shepard Fairey, the designer most recently known for designing the Smashing Pumpkins' Zeitgeist cover, announced at a press conference yesterday that he was recently commissioned by Led Zeppelin to design the packaging for the greatest hits collection titled Mothership.
Fairey is a well-known artist/designer responsible for the Andre the Giant Has A Posse street campaign as well as the Black Eyed Peas' album Monkey Business as well as publisher of Swindle Magazine and owner of Obey Clothing.
The Zeppelin double disc compilation is due out on November 13, but the band's members are gearing up for a formal announcement expected next week. Industry insiders suspect that the three surviving members will unveil plans for a one-night reunion, as previously reported.
