Print: Dead Letters CD package

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...

Retouch: Subnormal CD artwork

The artwork for the Subnormal album Theory For Evolution required some heavy Photoshop work to create a fire that would do exactly what I had in mind.

Print: Avatar CD

CD package for Melbourne post-rockers Season. Season wanted a package design that was as mysterious and deep as their music. The images for the package were shot at the Tate Modern in London during The Weather Project by Olafur Eliasson. The images depict a semi-aplocalyptic dream world, at the same time feeling hot and dry, as well as...
