Bolt Thrower LP Re-design
The aim for this project was to design and make physical and digital packaging for a re-issue of an album of choice. The design needed to work in various environments, such as: a vinyl sleeve, a digital format etc. I decided to accompany these deliverables with a series of gig tickets that would include consistent styling and design. My album of choice was Bolt Thrower, Those Once Loyal, a classic death metal album.
SCROLL DOWN FOR MORE V
Bolt Thrower's music embodies classic death metal which is fast-paced, brutal, in-your-face and loud. This naturally evokes feelings of fear, anger, sadness as well as feelings of courage, strength and hope. Those Once Loyal focuses on the themes of war, death, sacrifice and courage and, more specifically, discusses the historical event of World War I. I aimed to bring these emotions out in my design.
