‘Place' is an album of music and sound that responds to urban and rural places. In each track, the artist worked with recordings of places, people, found objects &/or electronic instruments and processing to capture the mood and tone of physical location. Creative challenge was to design for a record sleeve that in some way will respond to a place of Northampton.
Through the workshops, I have created an experimental typeface from bike parts, tools & found metal pieces. Experimentation with water, acrylic and oil paint has been made to produce the picture which can be seen as a background of the cover design. The idea to experiment was to represent multicultural places, people, capture a mood of the tracks. Colours were chosen to represent the magnificent nature and diversity of people. Northampton town map has been used as a white cover over the background image to bring a feeling of the location - place.
