PROJECT SCOPE

  • Merchandising
  • Packaging

CHALLENGE

The Connerys were a garage rock group that need branding, merchandise, design and poster work.

SOLUTION

I took the groups high-energy, ragged sound and translated it visually into broken typefaces, splattered textures, and bright colors.

ALBUM DESIGN

The album, Smile, was designed to be bold and a bit spooky – mirroring the sound of the band. It was designed in Photoshop with a layout prepared in In Design.

 

The title of the album, Smile, becomes darkly and playfully ironic with the addition of a staring skull. The colors choosen are complimentary orange and green.

 

POSTERS

These posters were done to advertise upcoming concerts by The Connnerys and other bands. The drawings began as sketches before they were refined and finished in Photoshop.

 
 

WEBSITE

This website was designed to promote the band, stream the latest tracks, sell merchandise, and advertise upcoming shows.

 

T-SHIRT SCREENPRINT DESIGN

This shirt was a one color screenprint design, handprinted at Verra Project in a limited run. The monster and astronaut convey the hysterical energy of the band.
