Originally recorded to be the solo project of frontman Kevin Barnes, this album instead became a redefining release for of Montreal's line-up.  Usually David Barnes is the illustrator for of Montreal releases, but Nina Barnes was already in motion to create the art for the packaging.  I was brought in to layout her collage work, apply typography and come up with an identity for the release's logo.
Above is my logo design for the album.
Next, the gatefold jacket for the LP packaging with Nina Barnes’ collaged photography and my typography.
Side note, the center side labels for the LPs seen here are the original designs Nina had intended, but due to printing constraints, the labels were later simplified to two color pantone prints.  I show them now because they are totally awesome!
