VINYL AND CD PACKAGING + 35MM PHOTOGRAPHY for valley maker
AKA MY FRIEND AUSTIN
Austin Crane is the artist behind Valley Maker, a folk music project based out of Seattle. His latest release, Rhododendron, speaks to “how the places and moments we occupy become reflections of ourselves” and explores time, transitions, and a lot else (see below) — it’s dark but hopeful.
THEMES / POINTS OF VISUAL AND MUSICAL INSPIRATION
THIS IS ONLY A FEW OF THEM (!)
Ocean waves, mountain shade, a world in bloom, falling leaves, beautiful birds, windfall, light on the interstate, birth, violence, darkness, earth, vision, distance, time, goodness, change, love, America.
A ‘LIL WINK
and a lot of lyrics
Alexa — co-designer, illustrator, dear friend — created drawings intended to layer intrigue and levity with moody imagery, simple typography, and a medium blue.
