︎Audio Obscura – Love in the time of the Anthropocene




︎Client – Audio Obscura
︎Role – Art direction / graphic design / custom typography



   Artwork for a forthcoming cassette album by Audio Obscura. A concept album about the perilous state of the planet in the age of man.

   Using imagery from the Brumadinho dam disaster in January 2019, I found the photography of Douglas Magno especially poignant, as to me, the scene of the minute orange rescue workers strugling through the mud captures the sense of helpleness against the immensity of the task at hand. I paired it with some custom type, which is my contemporary take on the kind of elaborate letterwork found on medievel manuscripts.
