Artist, Illustrator, Designer: John Potter - Escape Key Graphics
Things went so well with the cover for The Brainstorm Trust’s new album, Harmonic Motion that they have asked me to return and create a special illustration for the back of the CD case.
This project really blurs the lines between illustration and map design, since this map design is an illustration only and no such place exists. The musicians had the very creative idea to follow through on the album concept of an immersive experience that conjures thoughts and feelings of a visit to a theme park by making an image that looks like the visitor’s map to the park. The tracks of the album directly correspond to the attractions at the park, so the map key becomes a directory to both the tracks and the park. I don’t recall having seen such well thought out integration of visual artwork on a disk before. Even the great album covers we all love usually serve only as decoration.
