If I remember, I wrote a post a year ago or so about making music. I have never talked about my work on album covers. To be honest, I’m kind of happy about being a graphic designer, because I get to make my album covers myself and like I want. I’ve always enjoyed illustrated album covers and never really went for it. I’ve always been about very clean, photographic or vector artworks with typefaces until one day.
Sometime around December 2012 I released an EP under my Tremät Tämert alias. The EP, entitled “Wookie”, was different from what I used to do. I felt good about it because I finally managed to create a sound that I really was into. I think trap and wonky music was getting big at the with the releases of TNGHT, DJ Carnage and Baaeur. With that new sound and a new direction for me, I decided that I was going have a different kind of visual universe. Something a bit more… Weird. Less clean.
I loved that cover for a long time because I had gone away from the geometric based kind of thing that I used to do (all the time)!
Even though I was highly inspired by the producers listed before musically, one cover really inspired me visually.
DJ Carnage’s “Bang” by Niv Bavarski.
I’ll probably start posting a bit more posts about my work, even though I already said that previously. I am being seriously serious this time.
Have a sound day!
