Since this is a bit of a massive jump, I figured I'd share with people what the end result ended up being with this project. We went with the cardboard sleeves and also ended up using a design by one of the band mates which was silk screened onto the sleeves. The album was inspired by the like of Jacques Cousteau and other explorers, so we were trying to go with that vibe.Front CoverInsert Cover
There were also images on the back of the album and throughout the insert but I don't have the images on my computer here. Basically explorer stuff. Mountains. Dude fighting a giant squid. Planting a flag at the bottom of the ocean. You know, regular explorer stuff.
Had a lot of fun making these. If I were to do it again, and I will very soon, I'd get someone else to do all the silk screening... It's fun the first time, but after a while...
If any artists still want to work together in the future then drop me a line. I'm always on the lookout for new interesting artists to connect with in different ways.
Edit: It's maybe worth noting that my band changed it's name from bear claps to woodsfolk during the recording of this album, hence the different name in the first post. Unfortunately this band is no more as work had a integral member move away. I've since started a new band called Kings Quest. We're recording in my studio right now and we'll probably be looking for album designers soon.
