Album design

Design request

We got a request from Petit Gateau that on his Dub Area release he wants to represent his neighborhood in Paris, France. Several large photos have been provided and we have chose the best looking one.

Album photo retouch

The original photo used for this album cover was a low contrast colour photograph however it was sufficiently large to achieve professional looking sharpness for the resolution required by the music label. The photo has been retouched and converted to high contrast black & white, then relit with vignetting effects.

Text and typographies

Since retouched photo had a harsh look we have used horizontal and circular text in modern typographies placing producer, release and label credentials. The resulting modern design is an catchy equilibrium between old and new.
