Ben Wilkerton Tousley: not just the guy who designed that Grizzly Bear sleeve

Proving himself to not just be “that guy who designed that Grizzly Bear sleeve,” Ben Wilkerson Tousley’s site shows that he’s been pretty busy of late. We first featured him as a graduate in 2009, understandably impressed with that work for Grizzly Bear’s Yellow House, but since we last visited his work in 2013 he’s shown to be maintaining his reputation for great album design with some lovely work for the band Golden Suits and Long Island beat combo Mr Twin Sister. Both show a considered approach to type; with the Mr Twin Sister release letting a lone black scrawl of the band’s name over a transparent cover do the talking for the disc within. The Golden Suits work seems to take cues from hand-painted signs, luxury magazines and chintzy interior decor in the patterning, which works surprisingly well.
