Album Design & Packaging

Growing up an avid music collector, I loved going to the store and sorting through the seemingly endless catalogues and collections (fronts and backs) of vinyl records, and even the various incarnations of cassette tape and compact disc packaging to see what visual addendums the musical artists have provided to further propel the identity of the music contained within. In my personal and artistic opinion, the album art is equal to the musical content there-in...perhaps, even more so... because while the album may contain anywhere from 10-20 songs. the visual accompaniment is far more selective.

International Branding Campaign for the Band All- Out War:

When the Band hit Europe they were armed  with not only a brand new album, but a brand new look. The imagery for me is inspired by old school metal albums conjuring images from Sabbath to Slayer. The tour even yielded some great T-Shirts  from alternate designs. My eyes were popping out of my head after creating this one, but well worth the experience of telling the story of this album with some memorable visuals. The themes may seem dark to some, and it is definitely not without flaw, but it still remains one of my greatest  and favorite personal triumphs.
