We asked Brett to tell us a bit more about the brief and process, and he had this to say:
“Well basically the guys from Scarlet Hill approached me to design their EP and wanted something bold and different but at the same time pretty catchy, which represented something of their musical style as a band. They gave me full license to design how I wanted, which was honestly the raddest “gift”.
Being the first CD I designed, I scanned over a few CD covers I liked and kinda anaylised why I liked them and such. I loved the Tame Impala covers, that whole trippy-recurring-image vibe as well as Foals’ This Orient single cover, but at also wanted to keep my personal style. So with that in mind, I started messing around with some idea’s and after about a month-or-so of design and discussion with the Scarlet Hill guys, we settled on the cover.
I love design where each time you look at it you can spot something new or different, and that’s what I tried to achieve with the front cover. Loads of detail but at the same time trying to keep that balance. I kinda toned it down for the rest of the artwork, but overall loved working on this project, learnt tons and gained some valuable experience.”
I bet you love this? I’m gonna run out and get me a copy to see it in real life.
