Album packaging for Michigan-based band that blends hip hop, americana and folk on their album All Too Real.
The cover stencil of the three main band members was made from photographs I took. The band name, as it appears on the cover, is in my sharpie scrawl font. Also, as a note… If you ever need to find my fingerprints for a criminal investigation, this is where you would want to look. I scanned in multiple fingerprints, ink splotches, and other dirty marks on paper to get the grungy elements on the packaging.
I made a collage of band member heads on the back cover to give it a graphical element beyond the barcode and record label logo. Just a simple thresholding of heads from photos I took for the front cover stencil outlines.
To keep the inside of the packaging exciting, there’s an immediate burst of bright red coming from the disc. On the inside left, there’s a collage of closeups of instruments that the Hustlers use for their live shows.
If you want to take a listen to the album, purchase a hard copy with my packaging designs, or download it – you can on Amazon.
