BANTA DARK CHARMS - cover and photoshoot
This is the entire release package for Banta's Dark Charms album release.
Banta is a rock band with subtle psychedelic sensibilities so the illustrations and artwork I created are meant to pull subtly from that feel.
The concept was simple, Sharaya, the lead singer in a comfortable setting with her band, stoic as the central figure. The styling and setting was meant to connect back to the rest of the cover artwork.
I directed the photoshoot as well. We hired the extremely talented Kathryna Hancock to shoot the band in several settings. We shot this over a day at Warehouse Acropolis, what you see here was planned for cover, PR, and other materials. Alex Merrell brought the styling concepts to fruition.
I also put brand elements together for the label, eOne Entertainment, to implement across their various platforms.
