Really excited to have had the opportunity to design the latest album from Plastic Ants, titled Falling to Rise. Some of the highlights are the beautiful clouds on the gatefold-sleeve, to the crystal clear vinyl with the simple plane graphics along with the striking visual used on the front cover. While instrumental on the design for this album, to really bring it to life there was an opportunity to break out the camera and take some photos for the piece as well. Since it’s launch the album design has been getting some good press. You can read a write up by Fred Mills at Blurt magazine here.

Here is phase one of your logo development. Looking forward to your thoughts. Pretty excited about the creative approach to the balance scale. I have a guitar morphing into a trombone as the center component, and bass drums on each side with paint brushes holding the balance scale. Cheers, JJ — Looking forward to your thoughts.
