Deja Voodoo

Working with a music student at my university to create a logo, business card and CD cover for a New Orleans style band he played guitar in, I got to immerse myself in the aesthetics of New Orleans music and arts. Going to see the band perform gave me some inspiration of how to translate their sound into a design.

The client was insistent about incorporating the traditional fleur du lis, and by matching it with the skull, embellishments and Western style typeface, I think I have moved away from it being a cliched image to one that represents the band more closely relating to the voodoo aspect.

The CD cover and business card are both printed on a highly textured stock that when handled creates wear, giving it a unique and more authentic feel.
