The Longest Day of the Year

Layout Design, Illustration

Album layout and design.

I was talking with the drummer about design concepts the band liked when a tangent about Nirvana led to their In Utero album and my brain got a hard on.

That inspired the layers of the carapace on each layer of the album. I used just under two dozen sketches layered to build the cover design.

The finished album has a simple look at first that builds complexity as you spend time with it. Just like the music.

See what I did there?

"...ride on the carapace, and slow down."
