Grey Paris booked me for the Public Launch Package with a custom add on. Grey paris is a Berlin based Electronic-Acoustic band whose process of making music stems from a semi surreal landscape which translates into music that is part melody and part social experiment. Together we defined the band’s visual language, developed a logo, and crafted the artwork for their first Ep ‘now is the moment.’
The band's logo was crafted from a deep understanding of the 'how' and 'why' of their music. The band clicks back and forth between emotional cinematic melodies and harsh electronic sounds. I knew the logo needed to reflect the experimental nature of their process and allowed the logo development process to mimic that.
EP cover- "now is the moment"
The task was to not only create a cover image but to find a cost efficient solution for printing and packaging. The CD package is made from a single A4 sheet of paper that when completely unfolded becomes a poster for post cd-burning pleasure. The graphics reflect the collage-like process that Arian Stechert, the drummer and electronic composer of grey paris, uses when creating the band's digital soundscapes.
"[Our favorite part was] definitely drinking coffee with you and discussing about how the band works or behaves, but also having the first collection of ideas and being able to comment and express a desired direction. By asking the right questions, you got a round image about the project and summed it up perfectly in the written analysis. It's great to be treated so professionally." – grey paris
I want to work with you too!
grey paris, founded by Arian Stechert and Yiorgos Parisis in 2016, quickly developed a signature sound and an experimental sense of collaboration. Similar to the sensation of missing a step when walking down a staircase, grey paris creates a sonic system that the listener becomes entranced by, but just as quickly, they remove that system and replace it with something entirely unexpected.
