Happy New Year!

Wanted to ring in the new year right with some good news from the last one. REDEFINE Magazine’s online blog does a year-end recap of notable album artwork, and this one spotlights the deluxe LP design I did for my own band Touché Amoré. 2011 Year-End Respect For Album Cover Art : Deluxe Packaging


Hail to the Chief.

Congratulations to Eric Church on his #1 debut on the Billboard album chart this week. He set out to ‘kick some ass’ with his third album, and he succeeded. We were tapped to do the packaging design for EMI Nashville. Nice work Y’all. Photography: John Peets


Winners!

We’re told that P!NK was voted best iTunes LP (which we designed) for the first ever MTV O Music Awards. Now could you tell us what we’ve won?


We Stand Behind Britney

Props to our man Nick Steinhardt for the great Femme Fatale logo seen here as part of Britney’s stage set design. We hear that the tour is going to have a “post-apocalyptic” theme. Stay tuned.
