The Asteroid Shop - Album Artwork & Event Poster Design

I was recently asked to do the album artwork and event poster design for The Asteroid Shop's upcoming record, releasing via The Council and EMI later this fall. They were pretty insistent about their preferences in terms of typography, but otherwise I had total creative control with this project out of the gate. After giving the rough mixes a few spins I decided to do something neo psychedelic with a 90s shoegaze edge, which they ended up being very happy with.

For the posters I thought sticking to the main elements and avoiding too many distractions would be best. Maybe just a sliver of the album artwork along the top and bottom edges. Otherwise a pretty straight forward layout.
