Concept EP Cover, Times Neue Roman

Adobe Illustrator & Photoshop
5.125¨ × 5.125¨


This CD case was designed to reflect the digital nature of Times Neue Roman’s songs. The cover is only legible until the sleeve is removed which then reveals a cryptic texture, encouraging the listener to interact with the physical album. The group also requested that an image of Elvis be used because he has become a
part of the band’s visual identity.

Letterpress Keepsake

Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop & Letterpress
4¨ × 6¨

In a letterpress course, we were required to create a two-
sided postcard. Using the lyrics from Blackstar’s song “Respiration” for the text, the postcard depicts images of New York in colours reminiscent of yellow cabs and pigeons, both of which are synonymous with the city. The three verses were printed in values of black on top of one another to mimic the appearance of a pigeon.
