Dreadzone: 360 Degrees gatefold vinylback

Dreadzone 360 degrees vinyl

Project details: RECONSTRUCTION, ILLUSTRATION, Typography & layout design

This was a challenging one - I was asked to recreate the packaging artwork for the vinyl reissue of Dreadzone's 1993 album '360 Degrees'. The original artwork files had been lost, and the only reference we had was a somewhat battered CD copy of the albums. So, I had to redraw the cover artwork from scratch, recreate all typography and logos... I think the only thing scanned from the original packaging was the photo; which was meant to look like VHS video footage, so fortunately we could lean into the dirtiness of that. Really fun project to work on, and the resulting sleeve and record look great.
