Final Artwork + Fever Tonight

Here it is, my final design for the two song single ‘Fever’ Teaser which will be for sale tonight at the Old Ironsides release party for The New Humans with a price of $3 for the single and $5 cover charge. TNHZ will be performing with Call Me Ishmael and Pets. They will be the second performance of the evening. Old Ironsides is located at 10th and S street in Midtown so get on down there around 10pm. This is a big night for me and especially The New Humans and I hope all of you can make it out to support the music and design.

This was my first real project outside of school and I really enjoyed it because I was working with such an inspirational band that carries a strong voice . The New Humans and I have a similar nostalgic vision and I’ve been a fan since they began so we were able collaborate our ideas to create successful artwork. They wanted to keep it clean and simple so I decided to go with simple shapes and composition with minimal use of type. I usually have a retro style so we thought it would actually look great if the artwork expressed some nostalgia.

While we were brainstorming I asked Cole if they had any colors in mind for the artwork and he said that they always think of purple as a projection of their music. I thought is was a great color to express their music and especially the songs on the single: Fever and Modern Age. So I thought we would use a complimentary for a second color so I chose a gold-like color which is appears as an amber. This color represents The New Humans on the cover shifting the norm in the system of structured and ordered society. On the inside slip I created four male figures which take on two meanings. One to represent the four band members and the second where the odd one out represents the new human of the group of humans. The cover art is also printed on the CD itself so the the CD and its casing are quite cohesive. Look forward to seeing much more work from me for The New Humans. I’ll be taking photos at the show so “watch out” for those photos.

If you want to hear Fever and Modern Age visit there Myspace and give a listen and stream ’em.

Also find them on Facebook, Twitter, and on my Flickr page.
