Savoy Room 2.0 continues…

Can’t believe I haven’t shared this yet on this blog.

My cousins jazz band Savoy Room is working on its second album for a little while now.
Because it has been a few years ago they made their first, they wanted a new identity, slightly more mature and more meaningful.

I developed a new logo style and some imagery for their communication and for their future album cover. But more about that later…

Until their new single is released they will use this profile picture and banner on their social media.

Time has gone by so quick! This is already the second lp of MDV’s Voodoo Gold Records (VG002). The back of the label is a mosaic, built up from different hand painted and illustrated textures.

The mosaic itself and the colours are later added digitally.
If you’re interested in the music you can listen it here, and buy it over here at Clone.

It’s here! The new record by MDV from his Voodoo Gold Records label…..
I designed the label and did a little photoshoot with it on my gorgeous orange couch…

Echoes from the Dark Ocean – by Jeremiah R

So happy I can finally share this work with you!
This label design I made for Jeremiah R’s record Echoes from the Dark Ocean,
Distant Wave Record.

The font is made with an old (half working) Olivetti typewriter and in the computer.
The jellyfish pictures are JR’s own, which I edited by hand and the computer.

Patterns around the house #July’16

The 15th of July I’ve started a weekly Instagram project to get more pattern minded. Last year and this year I found myself buying more clothing with patterns all over it. It’s a nice contrast seeing them laying between my dark colored stuff in the closet and I find it a nice change to wear them as well!

To get even more pattern minded (for creative purpose) I thought I’d collect them as well, captured in a pic as reference material. And I thought, like many people do, Instagram is a good medium for this…It brightens my account too!

So…every week a pattern, shared on Instagram (and Facebook) and I’ll post them once a month on this blog, categorized ‘PATTERNS AROUND THE HOUSE’, found in the right menu.

This one’s for July!
