Patari Aslis album art
In their own words, Patari announced that they "rounded up six of the most talented and exciting young musicians around and funded them to create the music that they want to create on their own terms, without any creative dictation whatsoever. What’s more, the musicians retain full rights to the track - something completely unprecedented in this day and age of corporate sponsored music initiatives. This one is straight from the heart, people.
The result is a brilliant mix of 6 diverse tracks, showcasing the breathtaking depth and talent from young stalwarts of our music industry, destined to be the superstars of tomorrow. Featuring The Tamaashbeens, Abdullah Qureshi, Shajie, Sikandar ka Mandar, Mehdi Maloof Music and Hawaii Jahaz, we give you Patari Aslis - Volume 1."
I was asked to design the album art that would be used on the Patari app, their concerts, and to be sold as posters.

I was also asked to illustrate a banner image for featured section in the app. The brief was open-ended, and I chose to combine my love for Islamic architecture (inspired by the walls I see in my city, Lahore) and my take on our collective identity.
