An album designed for local artist Vigalantee, for his Spring 2012 release. All artwork for the album (album front, back and inside; merch and clothing; posters, flyers, etc) is derived from this design and is being continued by myself.
Vigalantee came to me with a couple tracks to listen to and asked for something different than what is generally out there in term of rap/hip-hop covers. After several drafts and revisions, the idea of a vandalized street sign, with the front and back being of the same sign from different angles, came to me and this is what came of it. The album itself feels like a return to the hip-hop form of old and so this “street” theme worked well with the overall vibe of the music.
Everything was done in Photoshop CS5.5 and CS6 using stock photography and open-source fonts.
