This project began just around the beginning of my final year at Carleton University and at the beginning of the pandemic. The goal of this project was to start a freelance business and to expand my own graphical skills of design. Through this project, I was able to apply my learnings of business, design, live music performance and marketing to successfully solve the solutions of my clients.
Terrence & the High Flyers draw their sound from the ’60s and ’70s which is at its core rock ‘n’ roll. The resulting sounds are a mixture of modern and vintage bring the band into the Retro Rock genre.
When Terrence approached me to design his band’s latest album ‘Lover’s Lane’, he had a very clear vision of what he wanted. My role as a designer was to bring his internal vision into an external representation in order to intrigue and engage his audience with the band's music.
Below is the 4-step process I take with every client when designing their cover art.
Design a sleeve that feels like it could be released in the 60’s but with a contemporary touch
Convey that the album takes a darker approach than the band’s debut album, ‘Butterfly Window’
The cover needs to have a hand-drawn look
I'm always open to collaborate, so don't hesitate to send me your project details. Let's make your music look as good as it sounds.
