You, Right Now

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

 

Completed 2014.

 

The design for this compilation is comprised entirely of details from a single photograph taken by EYE/I's President, Ben Rose...

 

The photograph was taken at Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, New York...

 

And depicts the sky shining through trees and their leaves...

 

However, the shot was taken using Ben's unique technique...

 

Resulting in unusual, alien forms and textures...

 

Save for a color temperature adjustment, the imagery is not computer-created or -altered in any way...

 

The client wanted something both organic yet unrecognizable, familiar yet foreign...

 

And felt Ben's photography was perfect for casting the music in a different light...

 

And capturing a singular moment in a unique way...

 

Fitting perfectly with the title: "You, Right Now"...

 

A phrase taken from the Donna Summer song "Now I Need You", which is included on the compilation.
