Ascension

Private client. Sleeve design, packaging design and art direction.

 

Completed 2015.

 

This compilation's minimal design is almost purely typographical...

 

Although the texture is inspired by the sandpaper sleeve for The Durutti Column's debut LP, "The Return Of The Durutti Column"...

 

There is something very fundamental about the "I" and the "O"...

 

Or what might be seen as simply a line and a wheel, or a basic masculine/feminine symbol...

 

It is also like a deconstructed power symbol...

 

The client wanted something extremely simple...

 

Yet with enough material to give someone something to think about if they really wanted to...

 

A different type of Rorschach test, onto which one can project all kinds of interpretations regarding man/woman, power, spirituality (as implied by the title), etc.
