August & Everything After

I was cleaning out my closet and came across my first generation iPod. Looking through my old playlists gave me the idea to start a poster series about my favorite albums.


August and Everything After, by Counting Crows, is one of my favorite CDs ever, and I listened to it a ton in my early teens. I wanted to design an album cover with type that includes the song list as well as the way I was feeling at the time.


The concept is based on a combination of memories from this time. The center circle is representative of the moon, and the bokeh to the left conjure memories of headlights in the rain at night. Even the title of the album holds meaning, because I began to listen to it during the fall. All of my memories from this time remind me of this album and vice versa - so this had to be the first in the series.


I've started working on my next piece and will be posting it soon! :)
