Graphic Design: Husbandmen create some glorious album artwork

Posted by Maisie Skidmore,

I always imagine that designing album artwork for a cool band must be one of the best jobs as a graphic designer; you get to revel in the mild synaesthesia that everybody secretly harbours by trying to recreate an aural experience in visual form, and try to silently convince passers by to pick up a record in the process.

It would seem that studio Husbandmen, which is made up of Karolis Kosas, Frances Foster and James Walker, would agree. They went to town on these two album artwork projects for Franklin Felix and Popular Mechanics respectively, both of which are rock bands based in Saint Louis, Missouri. From filled triangles in various sizes to wobbly type and coloured, marbled (marbled!) vinyl, the collaborative effect is like honey to the bee. If you can resist picking up these visually brilliant objects, you’re obviously not easily pleased. Unlike us. We think they’re excellent.
