wahoo! a new series is right here today.
today, on tunes tuesday i’m featuring an awesome band/performer with even more amazing graphics!
of course, i can’t wait to start off this series with my favorite guy of all time, jack johnson. if you have known me for any time… you’ll know i have a huge thing for him. HUGE. i always have and its been quite a few years in the making! anyways, first off, i want to highlight his awesome new cd cover:
ok first off a few things i’ve noticed:
typography. hello gorgeous! a trend these days is white text over images. clean, simple images and clean simple. this typography is super organic, flowing from one word to the next, drawing your eye from one word to the next, and of course featuring jack at the bottom in full color.
simplicity. well of course i mentioned this above, but i’m mentioning it again. those who know my design style, its simplicity. i’m not a super complex, lots of crazy layers and 3-D overlapping designer. now yes, if it calls for it at times, i’ll throw in a little. but less is more. see example above 😉
clouds. clouds are always a YES. i mean seriously? talk about relaxing and unwinding? perfect. i can’t tell you how many times i’ve taken photos of the clouds.
peace. peace is huge to me in this cover. jack is sitting ( without the ability to view his expression ) and playing his guitar. its dreamy, its fun, and inviting. sit and chill and listen to his music. ( of course you know that’s the soundtrack behind me typing this blog 😉 )
branding. you know i had to throw this one in there. his branding is right on spot. jack always seems to have designers who really know his style. he’s chill, simple, relaxed, and just mesmerizing ( duh gorgeous ). his style is rustic and surfer style, and everything in his website shows that. no questions if anything doesn’t belong. consistent. clean. pure.
i’ve included just a few screen shots of a few of his website. see my point? my favorite would absolutely be the home page – with the fun images that pop out at you, the rustic shelf like feel, and the interaction. overall… win, win WIN! 🙂 what’s your thoughts on this tunes tuesday?
