Design plays an integral role in elevating a musicians presence through the work they release. However as social formats change and content delivery diversifies, more becomes necessary to push high calibre visuals to drive the music, product or story being communicated. The core message needs to be put into sharper focus as the first step to not risk becoming lost in translation.
