Venem always has great ideas in his mind and reaches out to 329 to make the reality.
In 2016 Venem decided to drop the stage name and run with his own, Jakarri. This created an opportunity for us to play on the Venom comic book character and the iconic scene within Spiderman. The cover was illustrated in a very similar way to the comic books to be instantly recognisable and finished with an actual comic book feel, using textures, stickers and logo/name placements.
You can view a motion version of the cover here.
With this mixtape artwork, Venem wanted to become a fallen angel with other angels visible over the sky of Richmond, Va. He sent over some reference pictures of him and also some rough sketches to show his idea and we went from there. We ended up creating an official version, which included six extra tracks and also a Mixtape version.
In this mixtape artwork Venem required a typographic illustration. The the viewer the collections of letters mean nothing, but to him and his friends/family they have meaning.
Each letter was added and placed one by one. It took forever. The cover art was put together in greens, and the poster was put together in skin tones. Take a step back and have a look.
“I came to three29design after years of searching for a complete graphic artist. I usually come with elaborate ideas and it’s hard to find someone who can make that come alive in artwork. When I gave Livia my next 3 ideas, she didn’t hesitate to say she could do them all. She quickly replied with an affordable quote and quick timetable for return. I started to receive drafts within days and a final product within the week! The quality of the cover was better than I could imagine. She gave me multiple options on colors and two different options for the back. It came out better than I could imagine. I will definitely be getting all my cover work done with three29 along with many other services they offer” – Venem, Recording Artist
