record sleeve, poster + trailer for the nashville-based band, makeup and vanity set.
_how
telefuture records approached makeup and vanity set with the idea of re-releasing their popular charles park records as a trilogy box set. the moment the project got a green light john delucca, joey ciccoline and ourselves were put to work in tying the overall package together visually.

john was sent a few paragraphs detailing the narrative behind each album. he then started to create a poster that we could divide into three halves, to represent the three parts of the story.

we were asked to create the logo, cover and overall packaging for the record. the logo we made is pretty self-explanatory, but the packaging was a subtler affair. utilizing the bokeh affect often seen in films when the camera is focussing on objects in the foreground, we realized we could represent each part of the trilogy with a different coloured circle. in this way the cover image could say a lot with very little, and each record within the packaging could be differentiated by its own red, blue or brown graphic.

joey was then sent the logo and proceeded to shoot the necessary footage to create the teaser trailer for the trilogy, this clip was the first promotional piece released to the general public. once released the limited edition box set sold out in 2 days, but you can still purchase the album digitally here.

teaser trailer for the playstation game, lone survivor
_how
lone survivor creator jasper byrne asked us to cut a trailer for the playstation 'director's cut' release of the game. it's been 18 years since we last worked with jasper - we used to make games with him in our teens - so this marked a special occasion. enlising the help of jonathan bates of big black delta, we cut a trailer using original music previously unheard to fans of the game. embracing the twin peaks-style themes in the game and treating it very much like a trailer for a david lynch film, the result has been widely considered by fans to mark a change in the typical video game trailer aesthetic.

artwork for 65daysofstatic's film soundtrack, silent running.
_how
in 2010 the glasgow film festival asked 65daysofstatic if they were interested in re-scoring a film of their choosing. the band, always interested in the idea of scoring films, accepted and chose the 1970s science fiction cult classic, silent running. the success of the score lead them to perform it live at various festivals throughout 2011 and finally record it in the studio for release. 

the band approached us in the summer, asking that we might put together a poster and a record cover of some description for the release. it was similarly an incredible opportunity that was by no means lost on us. the poster was in many ways a direct reference to the film, as discussed here. the final record sleeve you see to the left was something quite different, and you can read more about that here.
