Smoke & Mirrors Album
We went through a lot of ideas involving smoke and mirrors for this release and eventually settled on this minimal illustrated smoke. Various illustrations were created to work within the booklet as well as the front and back cover. Retail album artwork was created for ecopack packaging along with a 12-page booklet and finished off with Spot UV gloss on the black print.
We also worked together on digital and printed headline tour posters, AAA passes, merchandise such as T-Shirts and more!
Social profile designs are created for Pre-Save and Out Now CTA campaigns to keep the brand consistent throughout. Two examples are shown above but these usually include Facebook, Twitter, Soundcloud, Youtube and Spotify.
Riding Shotgun EP and singles
For this EP Jess wanted a simple hand-drawn look throughout. A slipcase was printed, duplicated and distributed with the singles being digital-only.
My Country Christmas album and singles
For this festive release, Jess wanted to mix the almost surreal (to us Brits) sun of Texas with the traditional Christmas feel. The singles had a bold Christmas card feel to them with strong colours.
As part of this campaign, I worked together with Sonnet to take over the Jess and the Bandits Instagram grid for the run-up to Christmas. Creating an advent calendar to help promote this release had to be done. The calendar was packed with stories, recipes, performances, giveaways and more. Here’s a small selection.
