Artwork & packaging design
The special edition »Stations« by Fantastic Negrito is a study project where the task was to design a limited edition for a music artist of my choice. Fantastic Negrito is a blues musician from Oakland. The special edition contains three different records, a book with lyrics, packed in a large map of Oakland. The design is based on old train tickets.
»I wanted to play to people who didn‘t want to hear what I was singing«. The idea for the album „Station“ is based on this quote. He uses the different stops and stations to test his music with the travellers. People don‘t want to spend much time and don‘t want to listen to his music. These moments of direct experience with people listening to his music are the most important influences for him and the greatest chance to develop his and his music. The special edition symbolizes a fictitious timetable through his life.
