In music, the first really popular record with such a sleeve was Music/TheBeatles' eponymous 1968 album known as "Music/TheWhiteAlbum", but the mainstreaming of the minimalist design style from the 1980s onward is mostly the fault of Peter Saville's work for Factory Records in the 1970s and 1980s, which set the design tone for PostPunk and much of the eighties (and aughties). He did [[http://www.petersaville.info/sleeves/1978-1981.html sleeves]] [[http://www.petersaville.info/sleeves/1982-1984.html for]] [[http://www.petersaville.info/sleeves/1985-1989.html a lot]] [[http://www.petersaville.info/sleeves/1990-1994.html of mainstream bands]] (''e.g.'' Wham!, Music/RoxyMusic, Music/PeterGabriel, [[Music/OrchestralManoeuvresInTheDark Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark]], Ultravox), but Factory let him do ''anything he wanted'' on international hit records by Music/NewOrder.

* The cover artwork of the Japanese and American releases of the first ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' for the PlayStation consisted of a simple white background with the game's logo. The European release on the other hand, featured an illustration of Solid Snake's face to it.

* Every album so far by The Field. ''From Here We Go Sublime'', ''Yesterday And Today'' and ''Looping State Of Mind'' look almost exactly alike, with the band name, album title, and a tiny logo for the record label printed in a handwriting-like font over a plain off-white background - the only differences between albums are that the text is in different colors, and the background is a slightly different shade of off-white. ''Cupid's Head'' switches things up but is if anything ''more'' minimal, since the same font is used, but it's black text on a black cover... Although digital versions of ''Cupid's Head'' use an alternate cover where it's white text on a black background, so it's at least easier to read as a thumbnail image.
