GALACTIC is a collaborative band with a unique format, part of a diverse community of musicians, It’s a stable quintet that plays together with high musicianship. They’ve been together for almost 20 years. With roots in the New Orleans music scene they have the luxury of experimenting so on their albums mixing styles and bringing instrumental soloists each taking their turn on stage. In the first semester of 2011, Superfly the record company behind the band commissioned myself to give the face of their new album Carnivale Electricos, a mixture of New Orleans Mardi Grass and Brazilian Carnival. The challenge was to bring together the two cultures with all the energy and vibrance of the music. I was responsible for the whole design of the Vinyl and CD records designs and illustrations. The work I made was later used as key visual for promotional adverts and website. Read Less

Galactic Carnivale Electricos

GALACTIC is a unique band that has been together for almost 20 years. They are a sextet group that fuses electronica, hip-hop, funk, blues and jazz. With roots in the New Orleans music scene, and such an eclectic musical palate, they have the luxury of experimenting with their sounds, and oftentimes bring different soloists from different genres on stage during their performances. 

In 2011, Superfly, the record company behind Galactic, asked me to create the album artwork for their new album Carnivale Electricos. They wanted the artwork to be a mixture of New Orleans Mardi Grass and Brazilian Carnival. The challenge was to bring together the two cultures visually with a vibrancy that matched the energy of the music. I was responsible for the whole design of the Vinyl and CD records designs and illustrations. The work I made was later used as key visual for promotional adverts and website.
