The reissue also featured updated cover art designed by Malcolm Garrett, using the newer “double D” band logo featured on the Seven and the Ragged Tiger album and “Is There Something I Should Know?” single. The cover photo showed the evolution in the band’s image since 1981. In contrast to the earlier artwork, the new image positioned each band member equally close to the camera, and demonstrated the variety of looks within the band, from tanned adventurers to rouged androgynes. This reflected the band’s teen-focused marketing which promoted the image and personality of individual band members, recognizing that “everyone is someone’s favourite”.
