Teodorf

This project won one Silver at the 2016 ADCI Awards, one Bronze at the 2016 European Design Awards.

BACKGROUND
Teodorf is the first personal project of Italian author and producer Matteo Buzzanca, launched by the independent record label "ThisPlay Music". The eight tracks in English, recorded between Milan and London and mixed by Ken Thomas (Sigur Rós, Moby, Dave Gahan), go through various genres, mixing shoe-gaze, new wave, classical music and electronica.

BRIEF
The brief was to design an artwork to represent a concept album whose sound is poised between an analog past and a digital present.

GOAL
Find a memorable visual language capable of reaching and impress people of indie music.

EXECUTION
The music artwork has been designed to blend sight and listening into a unique experience. Each song has been treated as a singular concept song, a surreal trip down to memory lane, a picture to hang on your wall: 8 tracks, 8 loose pages, with illustration on the front and text on the back, free from classical binding that usually forms a booklet. Each illustration attempt to represent the text of every single related song.
