Help identifying a Single/Album cover

So a friend is stuck identifying an album cover from a small image of some very 80s pop artwork. I do recognize it, but cannot place it.

Any ideas?

That does indeed look familiar to me, but maybe that's just my imagination. I don't know if I've seen it before or not. The style does indeed look like it's from the 1980s.

I know for a fact I have seen this album or design, and I was almost certain I owned it. It's extremely familiar to me, but I looked through all of my "Rated" album covers at RateYourMusic and came up empty.

It could well be from a movie poster or DVD cover rather than a music album.

Looks familiar... but the first couple of bands (Duran Duran and The Cars) while similar aren't it.

That's cool. That image has gone viral because so many people think it looks familiar but can't identify it.

It sure looks familiar but I can't identify it. My first thought was that it was an album cover. Or maybe some design we sold when I worked at Spenser Gifts at the mall.

ETA: A Google Image Search for Memphis Shapes brings up a lot of similar patterns.

I was thinking Information Society or the background of Fresh Prince.

Re: Help identifying a Single/Album cover

Man, this is frustrating! I know we'll all be kicking ourselves when someone finds the answer, though it's obviously a somewhat obscure image at a minimum, or someone would have gotten it already.
I thought it might be Ultravox Greatest Hits, or Howard Jones - something poppy from the mid-'80s - and then it struck me that it might be a cover or intro design from one of the old '80s Degrassi series, but no dice. Maybe I'll take a look through my DVD collection.
