Album Cover Design + New Website

Last month I finally finished a new website and album cover design (see below) for my good friends the Carousel Rogues. They’ve got some great tunes that you can now purchase on iTunes. Happy listening!

Video: Let Yourself Feel

Video by Esteban Diácono entitled “Let Yourself Feel”. The song in the background is “Ljósið” by Ólafur Arnalds – a musician who happened to like the video so much, he made it the official video for the song. Enjoy!

The Bible Meets Graphic Design

I was listening to NPR the other day and heard this story, Two New Bibles Preach A Hip, Eco-Friendly Gospel, which led me to look up more info about this newly designed Bible, Bible Illuminated: The Book. Interesting stuff… I’m sure reactions are all over the map. It’s definitely the most interesting Bible cover I’ve ever seen:

Bible Illuminated: The Book

“First, the flashy coffee-table Bible: Dag Soderberg, a secular Swedish advertising executive wondered why so few people actually read the “good book,” so he set out to make it more appealing, with glossy photos and magazine packaging. The resulting publication is an illustrated version of the New Testament called Bible Illuminated: The Book. ” – Lynn Neary

Riceboy Sleeps, Art and Music

“Riceboy Sleeps is an artistic collaboration between Jón Þór Birgisson (singer for the Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Rós) and his partner Alex Somers. Not only do they make visual art, but they also create ambient music. The music tends to be more ethereal and experimental than that of Sigur Rós.” – Wikipedia

Life Without Eyes

As a visual designer, I’ve always been in love with ‘art’ and design, playing with visual imagery in realistic and surrealistic forms. Sometimes a photo or a random sunset will catch my eye and totally blow me away. I’m assuming this goes for all people who can see… Sometimes sight is something I take for granted, though. Sometimes I wonder how blind people in the world can ‘see’ and appreciate art and the beauty of the world around us without their eyes to see it. Below is a cool video that may answer that question. Enjoy!
