Manchester Music Collective
2018 - 2020
Scope of Work
Manchester music collective Hello Cosmos create music that has been described by BBC 6 Music as “LCD Soundsystem meeting The Fall in a dystopian back alley”. The band's debut album ‘Dream Harder’ released in January of 2021 has received support from BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio 1, Radio X and many more with Louder Than War adding their debut as one of their albums of 2021.
We were tasked to design a “cosmic, retro-futurist” identity and art-direction which eventually included a wordmark, several artworks for singles, an album design and even a music video. Taking inspiration and reference from their own lyric ‘cosmic glue’ we developed a concept which explored platonic solids which ultimately became the basis of our own design system and process for creative output right across the project.
