this is tÃ³ brandileoneâ€™s second album â€“ his debut record was one of our first projects. see it here.
our idea was to represent the passage of time through a reference to the sky, a white to cyan blue transition.
we organized the design so that the two extremes met in the middle of the coverâ€”part cyan and part white. Â
opening the two first folds reveals the acknowledgments, colophon and the disc itself.
the naked silver disc, with its colorful reflexes, also can be seen as a reference to nature â€“ sun, rainbow.
the writing on the disc follows the same grid as the inlay, but here we made a minor mistake: we worked with the discâ€™s dimensions as if it had a color background (a tighter center circle), but as the center of the disc is transparent, the text ended up interfering with an area of different color. Â
this is the front of the inlay when completely open.
in order to overlap the two ends, the cover was printed twice. Â
the back of the inlay forms a mini-poster (250 x 379 mm) with all the lyrics and technical credits for the songs.
in order to boldly delimit the typed and free areas, we opted for a compact text layout. this led to a new problem, which was how to mark the beginning of each song. the bars were a simple solution to this challenge, while recalling the design for the debut album to boot. Â
lastly, on the back of the closed cover, everything is design, even the barcode.
the hardest part of this project was getting the folds right. after a series of mock-ups, we created an accordion gatefold that ended up not being executed correctly by the printerâ€™s.
