Passion Pit's music is upbeat, but their lyrics are often dark and very real. I wanted to capture those qualities physically in the album box set I created over several months.
I used photo editing and photo collage, as well as my own ink splatters, to create the gritty but colorful appearance of the images. I paired that with GT Sectra, a modern serif typeface with dramatic thicks and thins. Warping Sectra allowed it to fit more smoothly in with the images.
This is a box concept created as a student, and is not a real world product.
