You know that design where the client says "anything goes". I don't get it often, and even then, I know it's still almost always got a brand identity to guide it. But just occasionally I get complete freedom to do anything I like, and that's when I have lot of fun, and usually end up learning new things along the way...
Below is one such example, becuase it's design for my own music, but the record label releasing it were really happy for me to just play and have fun and in the end were delighted with the results.
Naturally I do all my own artwork and publicity material.
The latest one with my album Benandi, released on Ping Discs label in 2023. Available Here
The concepts and choice of images is inspired by the music created and the journey I went on to create this album.
Here is the final design.

In After Effects and Premiere Pro, I have also been creating promo shorts for this release such as the examples below.
