Built From Sticks do!
Or did… and I would like to do lot’s more of it – I think designing for musicians is almost as good as drawing for yourself. At least that’s been my experience so far. In general, the brief from artistical musicallity types so far in my music packaging portfolio has been “yeah just do whatever you reckon – I trust you.”
Which is nice – it’s rare to be trusted in a world full of corporate design micro managery types who feed on the fear of those illustrator types.
So thanks Jamie! I Just finished up a CD wallet for a demo CD for Jamie and am stoked with how it came out – I can’t wait to see the finished product which will be printed on recycled card similar to the CD artwork I created for Monster Monster.
Jamie sort of did have a few guidelines though. But they were pretty fun ones. The music all ties back to personal dreams of Jamie’s and he gave me a list of snippets of dreams and said to go for it, interpret it how i like.
The other stipulation was to give it a raw aesthetic… nothing too polished or slick… which pretty much gives you a license to scribble cartoons and marks all over the CD… which i did.
Jamie should be having an album launch so I’ll make sure to update with that info when I get it. Oh – and th album is called Built From Sticks – Wish You Were Here.
