I was commissioned by musician Nathan Moody to design his Shades album, featuring a gorgeous illustration by Johan G. Winthers. The album was based around rituals, so the design took its cue from that.
The second image is the card that enshrouds the cassette box itself. I didn't want to spoil the cassette with any text (it is an instrumental album), so the cassette is wrapped in the text instead. Like a protective ward. The typeface is Roslindale, by David Johnathan Ross.
The third image is the front cover of the cassette, illustration by Johan G. Winthers.
The fourth image is the interior of the cassette sleeve, which features a color paint test by Johan, which I thought was extraordinarily beautiful, and wanted to feature in some way.
The final images are sigils that were used to replace the text used to designate which side of the album you're listening to. Again, since it's instrumental, we thought it better to just have some glyphs instead of text.
