Actually, Linotype’s site says “Designed by Zoran Kostic in 2004” and that album art is the original version from 1986.

Perhaps you could ask the co-designer of the album cover, Susan Welt.

With an ultra simplified design like this and only 8 letters of the alphabet, I can see this as being a case of independent development of a similar alphabet in 1986 or earlier [for the album cover] and in 2004 [as Why Square]. Among the differences in the two sets of 8 letters, I note that 1986 has shorter ascenders, the lower terminals on _e_ and _s_ of 1986 are double the length of 2004, the 1986 _a_ upper stroke includes a vertical drop terminal ....
