birth/death (album artwork)
This was another music design project I would undertake whilst working with Vaughan Oliver. This project was somewhat less connected with the client themself which allowed us more creative freedom in our use of imagery and colours.
The image used on the front is made up of two rose illustrations that we would cut in half, place back together and scan. Using Pantone Metallic Gold for the front cover but on matte paper was a creative decision made to use the Pantone printing to the "least of it's ability", causing it to take shine in certain places but not others due to the nature of the paper. The colours of the label itself were made from the original colours of the rose illustration to create juxtaposition to the rich gold of the sleeve.
