HANDMADE VINYL COVER ART FOR MUMFORD & SONS ALBUM, BABEL
handmade project / art direction
This was a handmade project for the Mumford & Sons album ‘Babel.’ This is one of my favourite albums, but after researching and listening to the album in depth, I arrived at the concept of “choosing strength in the face of life’s obstacles and darkness.” To represent this, I wanted to show something strong and solid on one layer, and something messy and dark on a lower layer. I created a strong, geometric typeface and cut it out of a clean, white board then laid it on top of a mess of black mesh and neon yellow. I then worked with a photographer to capture this and created the vinyl sleeve around this image.
