gabriel bruce show poster

long-time fans of gabriel’s music, we approached him after one of his shows in new york and had a quick chat. it turns out that aside from making beautiful songs, one of his band is also directly related to john cassavetes. this could only be a good sign. cassavetes, if you didn’t know already, is a fantastic film director and a huge influence on some of us here at (v).

i digress. a few months later gabriel got in touch and asked if we wanted to put together a poster for his forthcoming album release party in london. jumping at the chance, we cut out some of the photographs we’d taken of him performing in new york, and created 5 different designs. the above image is the one he went for, and below is another edition we were fond of from the batch.

the protomen
act 2 – the father of death_090309

act 2

it gives us great pleasure to present the cover for the protomen’s long-awaited second album, act 2 – the father of death. once again a huge thank you to artist john delucca for his stellar draftsmanship. it’s not often you can completely realize a vision, particularly one as vivid and painstakingly detailed as that of the protomen.

we handled all design + layout duties on this project and created the 24 page booklet that comes with the cd. if you are a fan of the film-makers john carpenter, walter hill, sergio leone, ridley scott and james cameron, then this record is for you. for all involved it was an exercise in bringing together every element of the toughest cinematic experiences out there and melding it into an audio-visual experience of the most unique and powerful caliber.

the record is out on september 8th, but you can preorder it now either at zambooie or on amazon. for more information about this and the forthcoming release show, check out the band’s news page.
