ICAD Upstarts Project : Signal Type Foundry
Love Me, Jackie Chan, 1984.
The brief for this project was to design a 12-inch album sleeve for Jackie Chan’s 1984 debut album ‘Love Me’ in the style of present-day electronic music. The genre of electronic music I chose was Japanoise - Japanese Noise Electronica. I decided to lean into the quirky record name and convey the title as a desperate plea. I wanted to play with the idea of interference as hard and loud contrasting sounds define the Japanoise genre. The idea of the project was to make a beautiful and compelling package in a style that is completely wrong for the contents.
