For Eagles live album Kosh hit on the idea of using the Anvil case for the front and back covers. As an inside joke that only Brit’s would get, he used the lettering from a beloved 1950’s UK comic Eagle(be sure to look at photo 2)He just added the S to to complete the band name! #koshart #koshartdesign #eagles #ukcomics #eagleslive #eaglecomic #anvilcases
Kosh won his second Grammy for the Get Closer album by Linda Ronstadt.  An outtake of the photo by Aaron Rapoport became the single sleeve. The wind machine nearly blew her over recalls Kosh. #lindaronstadt #koshartdesign #aaronrapoport #reddress #windmachine #getcloser #grammy #polkadotdress
For Kosh, there is nothing better than a well crafted reissue of one his album designs. At a recent trip to @amoebahollywood he came across a beautiful reissue of his #grammyawardwinner package for #simpledreams. The package comes from a fantastic company Acoustic Sounds @vinyl_lives who specialize in high quality reissues. This set contains two #45rpm albums and much to Kosh’s delight matched the color and typography of his original design. #lindaronstadt #grammy #reissue #70srock #simpledreams #vinyl #vinylcollector #vinyllove #vinyllp #vinyllives #records #recordjacket #recordjacketart #music #koshart #koshartdesign

Big night as Kosh and company receive the best comedy short award! This is Kosh's film directorial debut. Pictured alongside cast members Susan Shearer, Loraine Shields, and Amy Holt.
Kosh relative came across this flyer in UK. Kosh designed the original #electriclightorchestra logo. The logo has changed and morphed over the years to accommodate the needs of the current band but the beauty and instantly recognizable ELO look had not. The lettering remains intact from the original design. Original design was inspired by Wurlitzer, the company Kosh’s dad worked for. Great to see this logo live on. #koshartdesign #classicrock #wurlitzer #iconiclogo #jefflynneselo #jefflynne #elo #spaceship
