Cymbals

What Eternity

Introduction

Artwork for What Eternity, a 7" single from Cymbals. The band supplied me with a photo taken while on a road trip in the US. The photo seemed a bit lacking when seen against the backdrop of their music, so it was used as a jump off for something a bit weirder.

Image

At first I explored doing something with the image alone, but it just didn't have the right energy.

Typography

Then I started running the type through a program in Processing to warp and distort it. Finally we're getting somewhere.

Final art

The final artwork ramps up the colours from the original photo, and uses the distorted letterforms as a background. Available to buy here
