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 theĀ songsĀ 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.

Here is the first in a series of re-imagined cd covers. ‘Music has the right to children’ by Boards of Canada is a pictographik favourite and April 20th was the 15th anniversary of its release – and celebrates the news of a new album from them due out in June, so it made sense to begin with it! The idea was to approach the the covers as though it was a new release and be guided by the song titles and music for creative direction. Once a concept was settled on, the design itself was created in the time it takes to listen to the album – no pressure then… Enjoy.
