Equinoctial

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

 

Completed 2008.

 

The sleeve for this compilation is comprised of a single photograph of two items of clothing...

 

A New Order "True Faith" shirt (the orange and royal blue)...

 

And a Happy Mondays "Madchester" t-shirt (the white and cyan)...

 

Giving a nod to the music within and creating a fun, colorful environment in a style somewhat reminiscent of New Order's mid-to-late-80's abstract sleeves designed by Peter Saville (e.g. "Bizarre Love Triangle" & "State Of The Nation")...

 

And fitting the client's desire for a totally abstract design...

 

That felt like a sort of artificial evocation of natural elements (like water, sand and sunlight).
