Springles

'Springles' an album by Tall Tales and the Silver Lining, was originally released as four digital EP's, in respect to the four seasons. Each season was illustrated by four separate artists: Evan apRoberts, Seth Pettersen/Sasha Green, Jason Bays and Kyle Field. My initial inspiration for the layout was the simplicity of how record design primarily from the 60's. I remember looking at the block type for Burt Bacharach's 'Reach Out' and the warm wood grain on Dillard and Clark's 'Through the Morning Through the Night'. At first I looked at the four artworks together on a stark white background, but they all seemed to resist existing together in stark minimalism. Instead, I decided to print the artworks in a uniform size and photograph them on a wood surface. This layering of texture unified these very diverse artworks into one larger image.
