B12 – BrokenBroken

May 2017

My second job for Touched Music, as a huge fan of B12's music since the early 1990s, it was amazing for me to work on this, especially as it was my first ever record sleeve. A big moment!

This was also only the second vinyl release for Touched, Martin (who runs the label) asked me if I could come up with something for the next day. Steve Rutter (B12) wanted to use the oil on canvas image but needed it turning into a design. I presented about eight ideas for the cover and then over the next few days turned the favourite into some options for the full sleeve and centre labels. Steve absolutely loved what I’d done (I don’t think I’ve ever had such enthusiastic feedback before) and it was a complete pleasure to work with him. The EP was also released as a limited run of 80 “vinyl look” CDs (complete with CD sized vinyl artwork) which sold out within a few days.

I continue to work on various projects for Steve, including a new artist logo for him, t-shirt designs and various other projects for his Firescope Records label.

The vinyl and digital are still available from the Touched Music Bandcamp page.
