the objective

A poster for promoting The Greyhound James’ Band debut double album releasing concert. I cut some vinyl with a paper scalpel and ruffled placed the remaining of the cuts on a table. I photographed using the light of a small lamp because I wanted a dark atmosphere.

The same image that was printed on the poster was used to do the concert program.

I also reused the vinyl against a glass, to experiment with different backgrounds, and then photographed them.

the objective

This album was a reinterpretation of the music from the middle ages, in Portugal. I had total freedom, the client had no request. I chose to use an artwork pen, with sepia do to all the drawing and lettering, with the gold and violet, associated to the illuminated manuscript, as well as the “s” with that particular shape. The pattern was also a inspiration from the fabrics used back then. Then I photographed the all thing, making sure I let those nuances from the sepia stand out.

the objective

An album artwork for the band’s first EP, digital format. I was carving the linoleum and was very pleased with the way the fresh cuts were looking, almost like sand or mud, so photographed it. Later, when the EP was being prepared, I realised I had to use that image, the new start of the band vs the fresh cut of the linoleum.

the objective

Greyhound James wanted something to give to the audience, at the end of the concerts. He also wanted to include a little teaser to announce the EP releasing. So me and him come up with this idea of a doggy bag, only instead of food for people, it had dog dry food, so they could feed their hounds.

the objective

Tee shirts and cotton tote bags. Greyhound James wanted to use the word ”RUN” on front, allusive to the breed.

I made several stencils and then painted with fabric paint. The logo was printed with a linoleum previously carved.

The items were then placed on 3 chairs and finally photographed.

the objective

A logo for The Greyhound James’ Band. Classic rock, blues, soul and spaghetti rock are Greyhound James’ genre. He wanted a classic rock vibe to the logo that would incorporate the greyhound. The name is very long, so had to divide it four ways. I also wanted to put it altogether in a circle, because of the digital platforms. The main challenge was not to give in to the temptation of putting this well known runner, running. Now, I wouldn’t imagine it any other way. His ribs helped though.
