Not By design

Graphic design / Illustration / Typography

Clinton Tavares is a country and western singer / songwriter… from Watford and with Goan heritage.

He approached me to help create the album art for his forthcoming album Not by Design and this was a creative challenge I couldn’t resist. His background is less than typical and, though he celebrates this, it doesn’t define him or his music. I wanted to create an album cover which represents all of these elements without succumbing to the typical western design troupes.

To early design concepts; one collaging Clinton’s various influences, the other setting the artist in an alien, yet familiar landscape. We merged these two designs to form the final album cover.
