Record Sleeve - Student Brief

This student brief required a handmade element. I choose to design a record sleeve for one of my favourite DJs Mano le Tough and a remix of his song Primative People (it's spelled that way!).

I really enjoyed this brief as I choose something that had personal relevance to me and I wanted to produce the best work I could.

I decided to use real chicken bones to form a typeface which involved cleaning off the meat, letting them dry and then drawing tribal patterns on the bones. They were then photographed and arranged in Photoshop to form the song name. I wanted to keep the design simple with the bones capturing attention and a very subtle use of colour in the DJ name and remix name.

The artwork produced is clean, crisp and has a hint of mystery about it...
