Brief

AWAL approached OneTenEleven with the brief for the creation of the artwork for The Wombats fifth studio album ‘Fix Yourself, Not the World’.

Supplied with the amazing pixorama cover design from eBoy, the brief was to make the Vinyl, CD & Cassette artwork fit together like a 3D puzzle and create layouts inspired by the eBoy design.

Process

eBoy provided the pixorama along with modular components of the scene.

After studying eBoys illustration technique a 20×40 grid system developed to compliment the artwork.

The grid was utilised across the artwork as a guide to create colour blocks as a background to the eBoy modules. Magnifying the details of the scene to create large pixel block backgrounds.

The grids provided a base to create type layouts, selecting the FF Eboy Font family to further compliment the artwork.

This style was then rolled out across Vinyl, CD & Cassette artwork.
