I was asked to design both the cd cover design, and the album launch poster for Tara Simmons' new CD. The title for the album 'Spilt Milk' came from the fact that a lot of the songs on the album have an unintentionally depressing theme. Tara wouldn't say the songs ARE actually depressing, it's more like the songs are cleaning up the mess on Tara's behalf.
With that in mind the poster shows exactly that; we dumped a bucket of milk all over Tara, and captured the moment it hit her. Whilst this could be an ugly and messy affair, the art-direction does the opposite and shows a polished and intriguing image, and even an element of fun.
The cd design shows a cover with painted illustrations, and the writing was done with milk.
Launch poster was published in Asia-Pacific Design (APD) and shown in the Loud, punchy and meaningless exhibtion at Noosa Regional Gallery.
