The Gentry

The Latent Stranger EP

Year: 2005

Art Direction, Graphic Design, Artworking, Collage, Pre-Press

After a number of years of doing music-related graphic design, word of mouth spread being contacted by artists I didn’t even know, including The Gentry from Portland, Oregon. This was the second release designed for them, the first being their d├ębut CD Sweet Gossip TV. The art direction for both releases mashed up a mix of 80s new wave aesthetics, a bit of Roxy Music glamour and the distressed cut-and-paste collage feel that was quite in vogue at that period of time.
