Have just submitted this to No Doubt’s band logo competition! Check out more here, and vote if you like!
Another photo + typography piece I made based on Kylie ballad lyrics – this lyric from “Flower” an unreleased ballad that she performed during her X tour – and one that has always been a fan favourite (definitely one of my own). The type was handdrawn and then illustrated by me – the image used does not belong to me, and is from her X 2008 tour, available on DVD.
Digital design and superimposed concept for the packaging of my alternative, ballad Kylie album – White Diamond. Have just ordered some cd digi trays to attach on the inside of this cover (which I think is going to be a card fold-out). Experimented further with combining the fragmented Kylie imagery with my white diamond logo, and the existing white diamond type.
Oh, and in case you wondered, the track listing’s;
Made in heaven,
The crying game,
Put yourself in my place,
Where the wild roses grow,
Stay this way,
You are there,
Everything is beautiful,
(Instrumental/intro to Somewhere over the rainbow)
Somewhere over the rainbow,
I believe in you,
If you don’t love me,
You’re the one,
Better the devil you know
(They’re all either album tracks, b-sides, unreleased ballads, previously performed covers or alternative ballad versions of hits, a couple of which I’ve envisioned)
Have just started a new project inspired by those song lyric + photo pieces of design that are pretty common online. These pieces were firstly inspired by “White Diamond” – an unreleased ballad track by Kylie – which I decided would be the perfect title track to an alternative Kylie album of ballads, from album, b-side and unreleased tracks to reworked hits such as “I believe in you”. To develop this idea as a design project I started experimenting with imagery and typography, which I hope to expand into packaging and promotion design for my “White Diamond” album concept.
The photo used is from an exclusive poster of Kylie from inside the “White Diamond” documentary DVD, which I photographed using shards of mirror to create an abstracted, fragmented diamond-like image, complimenting the similarly style “White Diamond” text used on the DVD. As well as my own minimal diamond logo concept, I started designing typographic elements using lyrics from different tracks, the “I believe in you” type based on a found font, which I experimented with decoratively by hand then re-created digitally – one of my first developed attempts at hand-drawn decorative typography made digital, which I’m actually pretty proud of (however much my hand aches from incessant pen clicking in illustrator).
