CD package for Sealight‘s EP titled Dead Letters.

Sealight approached me to design the band’s first CD. Sealight’s music is light, textural, organic, and intimate, so I used an image I had taken on Fox Glacier in New Zealand for the cover. I expanded the image concept through the rest of design by incorporating the textural elements of the glacier. The ‘lightness’ was created naturally by the pale blues and greens of the glacier, and further realised with light-weight and -colour text.

The resulting digipak package feels precious and delicate; you get a sense of the music even before you’ve heard the first note.

Check out the EP on iTunes ($6.99!) and Bandcamp (€5!).

    It smells like the sea. Like the sea on a grey day, after the storm, and before the night.

    Exquisite.
