Facetas de Amor Album Art
Art Direction Graphic Design
A friend, who also happens to be a very talented musician, producer, and song writer, came to me and asked for my help with his first new album in many, many years. These kinds of jobs aren't the type I usually take on, but I made an exception in this case, being that he is literally one of my favorite people on the planet. He had a clear concept of what he wanted, and after bouncing a couple of ideas around we landed on the final design shown here. The album focuses on the different aspects, or "facets," of love in the human experience. The carving of a heart in a tree illustrated that perfectly. I actually went out, found a tree, carved this myself, and photographed it. I felt it would have the best quality and feel this way, versus trying to create this artifically. I used a script font for the type to convey the intensity and intimate sense of the project. I modified some of the letters to improve legibility and suit our tastes for the look.
