Piaz creates experimental music, mixing electronica with guitar pop. We were commissioned to create the record sleeve for their new album, Formants.
Piaz – Formants record cover
To communicate the electronic style of the music and the organic arrangements of the tracks, we commissioned an artwork that would illustrate these two things. The resulting hand-drawn illustration uses a mathematical algorithm to create a machine-like pattern. Printed on a natural grey stock, it's offset with fluorescent, machine-like type to further reflect the idea. The sleeve folds together without glue, die-cut using shapes created with the same algorithm as the front circles.
