German pop band 2raumwohnung invited us to design the artwork, album edition, single edition, limited album edition and limited box set edition for the release of their new album ‘Lasso’. Working for the pop industry and major label was a new experience for us and involved working with precast photography of the two stars.
For us the pop industry is characterized by an interplay of celebrity culture and music. Our graphic work tries to reflect this duality by dramaturgic means and printing techniques: layers of abstract motives representing the music were printed on top of close-ups of the stars. This multi-layered effect was reinforced by the use of metallic colors.
