Setting Sons Album

CHALLENGE

Setting Sons formed in 2010 and set out to bring pure, honest street punk to California. They combine classic punk and oi roots with a modern sense of urgency and power. For the release of their debut album the band desired a look that reflected the classic punk style of the late 70s and early 80s. Feeling as though the look of punk had been diluted over the last few decades they desired a look that reflected the purity and authenticity of their music.

SOLUTION

In order to truly reflect the DIY aspect of early punk rock the decision was made to create monochromatic album art with the high contrast, high grain images. The lyrics were typeset in a slightly distorted typewriter font and placed to look as though they had been cut out and placed together. Instead of simply placing the song names ahead of each set of lyrics, they were placed over their occurance in the song. This allowed for more visual rhythm, reflecting the energy of their music.
