Logo / 3D Illustration
Sami, violinist and music producer from Samifati, asked me to create the cover artwork for his first EP, “Chaï” and to redesign his violin F-hole logo.
For the symbol, I played with counter forms to break the monotony of the so-far enclosed F-hole. Then I did the typography with a Brandon Text base. The EP is about teas from around the world but rather than focusing on the latter, I proposed to go with an uncanny, minimalistic atmosphere.
I also offered to work on a video clip and showed him a test and he loved it. However, given the short time window available for the project, we dropped the idea. Yet, I made him a small video loop based on the final artwork for his YouTube channel. The project was widely viewed and gave him a strong brand identity.
