Lux Harmonium 7” Single

This fine drawing created by Hannah Megee is for Lux Harmonium's recent 7" single. The Bones You Break / Camel Bones came out a couple of weeks ago on the Static Caravan label. Hannah says " I decided to use the image of the donkey for two reasons; firstly, it was play on words as both songs have the word 'bones' in the title, so a little reference to the saying 'the straw that broke the donkey's back'. The second reason is that Luke Jones, the talent behind Lux Harmonium, often reminds me of a sad donkey." The image was produced in pencil and then lightly coloured in Photoshop.

DrNo Vintage Guitar Effects

Boom Artwork recently created the logo artwork and packaging design for DrNo vintage guitar effects. And a very pleasurable job it was, as he thrives on mixing graphic design, custom lettering and illustration, all of which were required for this commission. Initially BoomArtwork did some rough sketches and then set out six different vintage visual routes, one for each guitar effect. Reflecting the sound and style of the effect within the artwork, he finally placed the sketches in illustrator, traced them and added colour. Custom letters were also created to make every effect unique and special. BoomArtwork says "As I'm a guitar player myself I have to say these vintage guitar effects are truly amazing and really take you back in time. All effects are made with the best components and materials that are available, and every stomp box is 100% handmade by DrNo himself."

Tuff City

EMI’s KPM department has been working with Chris Ede on two album covers.

This Hip Hop compilation entitled “Tuff City” is a striking piece, very in tune with the genre of music. Chris created the double CD design and artwork.

Guardian Guide

James Brown recently illustrated this fantastic cover for The Guardian Guide. James also produced an illustration to accompany the article on the prolific blues recording label, Chess Records. James’ retro typography transported the reader back to the labels heyday of the 1950’s.

Ruth and James

It's been a musical summer for lettering artist Ruth Rowland.

Hot on the heels of the Lennon job, she has just completed the latest James Blunt album. "Some Kind Of Trouble" plus his latest single, "Stay The Night" sees loose, brush style lettering created to work with the overall design of the packaging which has an old school, scrapbook feel. The layouts were put together traditionally with sellotape and paper and then photographed. The style is also taken through to James Blunt's website.

John Lennon’s 70th Birthday

More lettering mastery from Ruth Rowland who was thrilled to create the lettering for John Lennon’s "Gimme Some Truth Campaign" to commemorate his 70th birthday.

Overseen by Yoko Ono and EMI Music and using many samples of Lennon’s own writing, Ruth developed hand drawn lettering for use across the album to capture some of his light humour. The logo for the campaign was inspired by the small calligraphic self portraits that often accompanied his signature.
