Haruomi Hosono—Watering a Flower
The project was album packaging with a randomly assigned music genre and art movement; I was paired with Ambient and Brutalism. As a huge fan of ambient music, I didn’t think twice about designing the cover for the cult classic Watering a Flower by Haruomi Hosono, an odd and mysterious collection of two ambient tracks. Inspired by the hard-edged and raw aesthetics of Brutalist architecture, the project was interesting to design because it involves something rooted in nature. The two motifs on the back and front depict the Water(ing) and the Flower. The belly band features custom typography derived from these minimal motifs. Typeface Designers: Rohan Rege, David Jonathan Ross.
