Ultrablood is a heavy rock band whose lyrical content is heavily inspired by horror writers such as H.P. Lovecraft. In both the logo and the album cover I’ve attempted to play with the tropes of both heavy metal and “cosmic horror”, balancing between the humorous and the dark, with inspiration from both 16th century treatises on alchemy and Disney’s Fantasia. The artwork is done in pen and ink, mimicking etching techniques, scanned and digitally coloured.
Carlo Revello et Figli
Carlo Revello recently split from a partnership to launch his own brand of wines. His vision is to bridge the gap between traditional and contemporary wine production techniques, something I wanted the design to reflect. The main feature of the label is Bacchus, the Roman god of wine, recurring in art throughout the centuries, here rendered in a crisp contemporary fashion. The typeface is custom made, based on early modernist Italian type.
Artikel 31 hosted UrSinnen, an art exhibition aimed at infants, and from that the idea to produce a book showcasing the artists that participated but more importantly facilitated continuing exploring both the sensory and philosophical experience of being human was born. “Ombord Tanken” (Aboard the Mind) is the result, an e-book intended as a companion for children and parents wishing to tackle the human condition in a playful way.
We decided early on that the book was going to be non-linear, instead utilizing the octopus and its tentacles branching out, each tentacle representing a certain “flavour” of experience. As each chapter or tentacle is comprised of a number of short stories, exercises and things to marvel at I opted for a more of a card-like design rather than a traditional book.
“The Mission” is an experiment in integrating digital technology and gamification into a science centre with a strong analogue emphasis. Adding specific challenges and visual screen-based feedback into the already existing exhibition we aimed at integrating a number of installations into a coherent experience. Briefly, the game is about gathering parts for your exploration vessel. As the exhibition has a very rustic feel with lots of metal and wood I opted for a steampunk feel in the graphics.
