I have been working with Jonathan on an informal basis for the past few years. Last year he went to Austin to record his debut album and in December I was brought on board to Creative Direct the whole project. The album will be released in August of this year. In the meantime there will be two single releases the first Blind Belief on April 29th. What is great about this project is the ability to utilise all my skills and talents as well as generate some new ones and to be part of a really close team. Initially I had to pull in styling, hair and makeup and create a bolder look for Jonathan without loosing his identity. Jonathan is a singer songwriter of the pop genre and is at the other end of the manufactured pop spectrum so it was important to ensure that came across.
The past two months have been spent shooting stills for press, social media as well as for all single releases ... the design and build of a new website, brand and logo, plus cover artwork for the first release. I am currently putting artwork together for the Album Promo Sleeve which is used by the radio pluggers. Work is ongoing and I will also oversee all music promo's. It is a fantastic project to work on and has also given me the oportunity to work with some really amazing people ... Sara Silver, ex BMG VP – UK Marketing and Publicity, Justyna Dobrowolska (makeup artist) Timothy David (hair stylist) and Brendan @ Social Charm amongst many more ...
Some of what I have been up too ...
