Artwork for a Jazz Album

Each track is visualised by its musical footprint.
This graphic in the inside of the paper-sleeve explains how every track was coded visually.
The CD is wrapped in a simple paper-sleeve.

Telling stories with music

I was very happy when my brother asked me to collaborate for his first solo album. I got even more excited when I learned the album is all about stories.

Eventually we came up with the idea to visualize every track of the album with a unique visual fingerprint, based on track metrics. Each fingerprint corresponds to a unique story, told with piano music. We wanted to show the stories on the cover, but in an abstract way – still allowing the audience to follow their imagination.
