Flipping back to the positive, a new release for Ground Level means another piece of design for music goes out to the ether today too. This time round its Joe C with the track ‘Kamikaze’ and a remix from label boss Andy McAllister, which you can listen to (and buy… *coughs*) here.

jo lewis lovers cover art

Recently, the picto-brain offered to create the artwork for the talented Jo Lewis’ next release. After a conversation over a beverage or two, armed with the titles, a little insight in to the stories behind the songs and a page of notes on appropriate colours, moods and themes, the ‘brain set to work whilst listening to the ep.


The concept artwork was delivered, and although Jo liked the layered image, she has opted for a more traditional cover with a striking self portrait.

You can’t win them all, so the saying goes, and it was an interesting creative project none the less.

Check out Jo’s music here and keep an eye on her facebook page for updates on the forthcoming ep.

Happy Friday folks, here’s a little question for a sunny evening:

If the typographical element is removed from album sleeve design/single cover design, can the remainder be considered art?



Below are a few pieces of design for music from the picto-brain with the text removed or cropped away…

wish you were here 1

Pretty Litter is an awesome independent Arts and culture magazine made in Brighton, featuring creative work “from Brighton, the UK and beyond”. They recently had a postcard competition on the theme of ‘Wish You Were Here’, so the picto-brain conjured up three composite images of non existent beautiful places that you may want to go to.

Will let you know if it tickles their optical receptors.

On Saturday 11th February, Quad had the wrap party for its awesome experimental audio visual exhibition, v.01, which included collaborations between regular nights at Quad and local creatives.  For the opening portion of the event, LongPlayer (an album playback night) chose ‘Cerulean’ by Baths, Five Lamps Films submitted videos for some of the tracks and Pixel Synthesis got Pictographik in to do a  live visual remix of the cover artwork in the duration of the album.

Above is the original artwork by Jesselisa Moretti, and below are the two remixs the pictobrain spewed forth.


The album lasts about 45 minutes but after recently completing a qualifier for the Cut & Paste tournament which gives you 15 minutes to complete a piece of work, I finished pretty quickly, so did two! Enjoy.
