Portfolio

Universal Music

http://www.bellx1.com

I designed Bell X1's debut ablum and following singles as well as promotional material for Universal music.

I reflected the albums tone and mood throught origional photography produced by myself then worked up in photoshop to reflect the music.

The album design was taken from origional concept throught to finished artwork by myself.

The feel of the design reflects the still time between five and seven in the morning when the city seem's to pause during the transition from one day to another.

Universal Music The Vard Sisters

http://

This album "The Vards, A Time of Change" was designed to reflect the transition this group was going throught. Contemporising and revitalising the groups image was upmost in consideration during the project.

All design work was carried out by myself throught to final output . I also designed all follow on material fro the project.

Universal Music "Duck its Opera"

http://

This compalation was developed to entice a new listerns to the material.

I took a fresh approach to the subject developing an evecatching design style, keenly focused at attracting the 18-25 market to the product.

I coverd the album in "bathtime" rubber ducks giving it a lifestyle feel detracting from the somewhat stuffy traditional feel of previous opera collections produced by Universal.

I took this project from inital rough's to the finished product, which went into a second run attributed to the fresh design approach by the client.
