Students from Leicester College were tasked with creating cover art for the rethinkyourmind project song ‘Read the Signs’. Mark Morriss of 1990’s chart topping band The Bluetones worked with the Leicester band ‘Refuge’ to create the single. Students were provided with the song and the lyrics for inspiration. The track becomes part of The Audio Yellow Book a digital wellbeing resource, providing simple tools, practices, spoken word and music with the aim to help empower people in maintaining their health.
