At the beginning of this week (4thOct’10) Dinosaur Pile-Up released their debut album! I’ve not blogged too much in such a long while because almost all the work I’ve been doing has been building up to this release.
I’ve shot rolls and rolls of film with the band, in lots of different situations over the last 6 months, in doing so I built a strong relationship with the band and was asked to work on the album artwork, which I jumped at.
Matt Bigland and I decided on an idea for the cover image we decided on a look based on several key inspirations and we booked into the photography studio to get it down. To complete the imagery needed for the sleeve and inlay we hand picked a few images from the pool of photographs I’d created.
My close friend Kate Prior got on board the project early on and created all the typography by hand, and in the final stages took charge of the layout.
