I am loving both the process and the final design of this LP package where the cover and the back cover use the same color palette but different stylistic solutions that work together through story telling.

Project Description

Relicários de São Tolosa mixes classic, progressive and psychedelic rock among other references from music, cinema and literature in their sound. I was commissioned to design the sleeve of their first album — homonym —, witch is the materialization of their first authorial production and physical manifestation of much energy accumulated.

I defined 3 concepts to guide the design: reliquary, as envelope or container to present the band; search, linked to the questions proposed in the lyrics; and explosion, to express the climax that the album represents.

A glass shatters while the liquid remains unshaken. From the cover, the narrative unfolds through the other images, full of details and subtleties. The visual is directly connected to the process of drawing from an intentionally broken glass and using the same shards to produce the back cover image by playing with different languages. Just like the album, the graphic result is poetic, surreal and open for readings — an invitation to audition.

Production Lesson(s)

Make as many prints and prototypes you need. So the result will as close as possible of what you designed. ”
