WIR II PLANET
Sector: Cover Artwork
Client: ALLE ACHTUNG
Disciplines: art direction, graphic design
Mid 2018 we were approached by the Austrian band ALLE ACHTUNG to art direct and create the visual language for their upcoming 2018 album & release called “WIR II PLANET” (WE II PLANET).
Still with a rough and original indie rock sound, the music of the new album features also pianos and strings supporting the theme. Their music tells about the complexity of emotions in relationships.
After extensive listening to their music we developed a feeling which kind of visual direction would suit the theme. It was set from the beginning that the result would have to incorporate all three aspects of the album’s title. We used the overall round shape in combination with NASA satellite imagery to communicate the PLANET aspect while the WE 2 is formed by the silhouettes. The patterns of planetary structures are also expressions of their personalities.
