Final Artwork Preview

Posted by Kevin Moore (Creator)

Over the past few weeks I've been working with a talented graphic designer named Alessandro Falca of Conte di San Pietro. He has done an amazing job taking the classic Penguin Books style, coming up with an original illustration based on the Shine video, and adapting it to a 6-panel digipack.

Here are some comments on the design from Alessandro:

"Realizing the artwork for a movie soundtrack is about finding the right mood of the music featured in it, not necessarily in a one-way road to the imagery of the film. Küçük Kıyamet is an excellent specimen of cinema, both visually and conceptually, with a brilliant soundtrack; the challenge has been creating something with its own heartbeat, with several interpretations on different levels."

Alessandro is currently working on the poster and T-shirt design. The digipack is now finalized and will go to the manufacturer next week. I am hoping to ship preorders late this month or in early December.

More updates to come!

      No, no Wiche Rubio, you don`t have to see the film again. Because the meaning of the dog is very simple: Kevin Moore dosn`t like cats!!!!!! :-)

      If the film is about Earthquake, can we conclude that the cracks in the orange circle (setting sun) with the shock waves around it represent the Earthquake? And maybe the dog remains loyal to his/her owner even when the Earthquake hits...Just my thoughts, i need to watch this movie!

    5. Wiche Rubio on

      LOL Michael, I saw it like 8 months ago...! I think I should see it again! :P

      I like the little animal at the top. There were the penguins and pelicans on the books and this is a nice little detail that shows that the cd cover is following suit. I wonder why a dog was specifically chosen though. Like Lin-Lee I immediately thought of the dog in the movie when I saw it...hmm...

      The more I look at this artwork the more I discover new interesting elements. :)
      The dog, for instance: in many cultures it is a very strong symbol representing the totem-animal that helps and leads the lost souls in the passage to the "other side".
      I just watched Küçük Kıyamet and there was a dog there too... it makes sense!
      Thank you Kevin for this amazing soundtrack and thank you Alessandro Falca. :)

      This looks fantastic.

      Thank you for the heads up Kevin. This is great ! A bit different from what I had in my mind when I was reading the post "CD design ideas". I like it a lot. It has that "retro" feeling.
      From what I can see the track-list is the one that is posted on the project's home plus the "Shine (Intro)" again ?
      We will be waiting for the t-shirt and poster designs with anticipation :)
