I was commissioned to design Carl Cox’s new album. Intec Digital (his label) wanted a design with impact. I jumped at the opportunity. Carl's an ambassador when it comes to house music and one of the biggest DJ's in the world. Here's my design and illustration for the album and subsequent events. Pure Intec Two, Mixed By Carl Cox and John Rundell.
‘KEEPING LONDON UNDERGROUND SINCE 1999’
Intec’s slogan above inspired me to create an 'apocalyptic' London scene, the ground cracking and underground laid bare. I think it fits with the raw, and bass rich sound. The use of pure in the title gave rise to the idea of a graphite like texture applied to the work. Although dark, I wanted it to feel euphoric, to me house music is also about celebration. I used dramatic lighting to achieve the feel I was after.
