Little Green Cars
Album artwork for the debut album by Little Green Cars
Earlier this year we were approached by Little Green Cars to design the cover and inside artwork for their debut album Absolute Zero, an opportunity we were very excited about as Little Green Cars had already been heralded as being one to watch for 2013. When we met with the band, they explained that the album jumps between two contrasting perspectives: the beauty of a reckless youth and the fear and confusion caused by our ever-pending adulthood.
Our concept for the artwork needed to encompass both the light and dark sides of the album. We did this by creating two contrasting images. From the front we see an elegant image of a girl from behind, all seeming well. When the album is turned over, we see that the cover image is deceptive, and the girl is crying and upset. We commissioned Illustrator Steve Doogan to illustrate the concept, and below you can see some of the journey from our initial story board to final pack shot.
