record sleeve for the nashville-based band, the protomen
_how
the husky jackal theater company wrote and performed a shakespearian retelling of james cameron's feature film, 'terminator 2.' on october 11th 2011 the play made its stage debut in nashville, tennessee, aptly titled 'terminator the second.' in collaboration with 84001, the protomen wrote and recorded a soundtrack to the play, which they later released as a digital download on the play's website. adapting a drawing created by the play's cinematographer, we created the soundtrack's artwork you see here.

you can buy the soundtrack, along with a video recording of the play on the production's website here.

artwork for the singles off of big black delta's debut LP, BBDLP1
_how
after signing to nerve management, big black delta have been set to release a series of singles both on vinyl and digitally. challenged with a way of making these releases unusual in some way, given some of the songs have been out for a while, we suggested that perhaps each release's artwork tesselate with the next. this way all the singles can form a larger image once they've all been collected. at the time of writing two releases have been put out, IFUCKINGLOVEYOU and betamax, which you can see here.

_what
website for the tron legacy soundtrack by daft punk
_how
understanding that we were enormous fans of the original film and the forthcoming sequel, our new collaborators topspin, asked us to create a site gather emails for the forthcoming soundtrack release. given the soundtrack has been created by daft punk, we knew the site would get a vast response online from music geeks to film buffs alike. as such, we took full advantage of some of the latest web technologies (with help from mr. doob) and produced a site that works on iphones, ipads as well as regular machines. the end result is a very streamlined data collection / e-commerce site with many secrets (for those fans that love secrets as much as we do).

_what
site for the new-york-based property broker, michael bolla.
_how
this has been one of our more long-form projects & much like thomasnewbolt.com it has really tested our abilities on a number of new design fronts. the brief was to translate into website form everything that michael bolla & his company luxury lofts & homes have come to stand for during their 15 year existence. michael showed us the kind of sites he was into & we ultimately chose to design the site in flash in order to capture the company's very personal & non-corporate approach. furthermore his passion for yoga, beautiful spaces & subtle, elegant design have all come to the fore on this project in a manner that's translated very well into some satisfying web design. much like the stationery set we designed for him, this site has a lightness, grace & elegance that contrasts well with the world of luxury realty.
