Album Cover Design & Logotype for Michael Arenella

I not-so-recently designed an album cover & logotype for the mega-talented Michael Arenella who performs Jazz-Age dance music. (okay, I know should say “CD cover”, but I just can’t…) Since the album is his first, and self-titled, he wanted the album cover to be iconic and incorporate one of the many fantastic photos of himself that he provided. Since he also needed a logotype for letterhead and his press kit, we decided to combine the two projects. The tricky part was to create a type treatment for the album that would function in other contexts. Here is the finished cover:

And here just a few of the amazing photographs that Michael provided. It was very difficult to choose just one. The center image was a big contender…

    Gorgeous album cover! I love the flat bowtie shape (!) and the killer type. I came across this looking to buy the CD. I noticed this design is also the banner of his website. prettyyy.
