THE ALBUM ARTWORK

Well here it is! After many, many, many revisions...I finally arrived at something that I felt successfully captured the enigma that is Shamir and his music. The energy of the record is conveyed through the bright colors, and sensation of movement from the patterns. The overlap and repetition of the graphics represents the layering of beats and rhythms. I used black as the base color and a slightly rougher pattern to symbolize the darker, and more raw side to his lyrics. In order to create a sense of mystery and intrigue, I intentionally left Shamir's name and album title off of the packaging. It adds an element of discovery and unexpectedness, which parallels Shamir's elusiveness.
