Branding, Illustration, Motion
Nathan Kramer is a Sydney-based prog-rock musician with an insatiable love of Ramen. If not chopsticks, you will be sure to find a guitar in his hand, being wielded to compose heavy, melodic, and anthemic instrumental sounds. For the release of his first EP titled Dialectic I, I had the pleasure of designing the original album artwork and brand design.
The album cover art featured a wild, imaginative illustration that combined Nathan’s two passions in a single, coalesced image. Being his first EP, and a very personal project, it was important for the artwork to shine this light on Nathan’s personality. This project also consisted of a logo design which will serve as the brand identity for Nathan on his future projects. Featuring a mirrored, maze-like symmetry, the logo looks the same from ant orientation. This concept drew inspiration from the name and overall concept of the EP, alluding the dialectical method of discovering mean- ing through different perspectives.
