The EVD Various Artists series needed a refresh. The previous run saw Vancouver store fronts' signage changed to list the title and artists, a really great design. My challenge was to bring a completely new approach without sacrificing the connections to East Vancouver, and the variety of sounds that the artists brung.
My solution was to use a semi-complex pattern, different on each cover. For the East Van touch, have the number of the release filled with street names from that area of the city.
Just like the EVD VA House 5 cover, this continues the new direction for the series, leveraging colour and pattern to differentiate the projects, over completely different graphics for each cover.
