My seventh design for Ben Rama’s Techgnosis Records builds on an abstract image I captured at a scrapyard) in rural Changhua 彰化. I always figured I would use it for an album cover sooner or later—so when Stoertebeker’s Artificial Structures landed in my inbox I jumped at the opportunity. Type is set with Diavlo, a surprisingly complete free font with five weights and several intriguing ligatures that help to give the design a slick look.
For reference, here’s the original image:
As you can see I hardly did anything to it at all!
