DIMMER - I Believe You Are A Star

I recently worked with Dimmer to repackage their 2001 debut album “I Believe You Are A Star” for a vinyl release.

The album, on Sony Music, was not released on CD at the time.
In 2002 I was nominated for this album in the “Album cover of the Year” category at the New Zealand Music Awards.
For the repackage we were able retrieve the original digital art files from our archive so the repackage involved no re-scanning.
Photographer Mark Smith’s beautiful shots of Auckland’s Alexander Raceway look great at LP size.
We made a few other tweaks for the LP art and it came out great.

Limited quants of the LP are available via Flying Out

New Artwork – Nathan Haines "Vermillion Skies"

Just released is a new album from Nathan Haines Vermillion Skies.
This follows on from last year's The Poet's Embrace and in keeping with that release we designed artwork that fitted the feel of a traditional jazz album without the trap of coming across kitch-retro.

Vermillion Skies debuted at #5 in the New Zealand Top 40 album chart (April 5, 2013) between Bruno Mars and Justin Timberlake and is available on CD (Super Jewel Box) and limited edtiton 12" LP.

Congratulations are in order for Nathan - The Poet's Embrace won the award for 2013 New Zealand Jazz Album of the Year - the NZ equivalent of a Grammy or ARIA Award. The Poet's Embrace will be released in Europe on the Warner Classics in May 2013.
