As part of the release campaign for Drum & Bass duo SIGMA’s debut album Life, we art directed its cover – along with the artwork for two of the record’s hit singles.
After directing a portrait photoshoot for members Cameron Edwards and Joe Lenzie, we commissioned one of our favourite American painters, Joseph Lee, to lend his abstract touch to the images. Using heavy, textured brush strokes, he captures the complexity of human emotion in an accessible way.
Together with our booklet layout, typography and creative direction, it’s an appropriately collaborative cover for an album full of killer collabs and guest appearances.
Life is out now on Beat3 Records.
