Egreen / Beats & Hate

Design: Packaging
Photography: Sha Ribeiro

In 2015, I was asked to design the packaging for the rapper Egreen’s upcoming LP, in collaboration with award-winning photographer Sha Ribeiro.
I created a visual narration based of Egreen’s personality, his aggressive yet thoughtful attitude. The stripped back and minimalistic approach of the typography allows Ribeiro’s powerful shots to shine and tell the story, while working as a sort of footnotes to the project.
The album was funded via crowdfunding. Since the project reached over 300% of his goal, and as a reward for the backers, we produced a boxset including a digipak printed on metal foiled paper, with raised ink, a booklet printed using black ink plus two additional Pantone ink (a heavy black and a deep grey) and a matte black cd with a UV spot ink.
