Local Brighton musician Lost Idol approached me to design a sleeve for his third album titled ‘Chrome Machine Tales’ as well as a couple of single releases.
This was a dream project for me. It gave me a chance to explore conceptual ideas based my emotional response to the music which was an interesting challenge. Years of creating sleeves for mix CD’s I’d make for myself and friends had prepared me for this project.
The development process was rewarding as it gave me complete freedom to create designs based on my interpretation of the music. Below are a couple of initial directions that informed the final design.
