A next set of releases followed by end of Dec. 1957, as denoted in Billboard 23. Dez. 1957 page 17. The last release in 1957 was DLP-56.
Till 1965 all releases were Mono only. Stereo versions were released on the sister-label Stereo Spectrum Records.
The early label versions shows the colored logo on top with white wording across. There are versions with white and yellow rim wording, and with yellow only rim wording below the horizontal white line across the label.
Some early versions states 'STEREO SONIC SOUND', while indeed the pressing was mono. Later versions don't have the colored logo on top anymore. They are pure black and white. In the middle of the 60s the label design changed to a red version.

Like many of the other budget labels, Design Records used their in-house staff to write the songs and to perform the generic orchestral arrangements. Among the other staff writers Lou Reed appeared as a singer and guitarist as well as a songwriter on several of the mid-1960s Design compilations and albums.

Later versions denotes the parent company Pickwick International, Inc., that was launched in the early 60s. The label was in use till the early 70s.
