After listening to The Oh Hellos’ music, I was really conflicted on how to represent their band in their CD packaging design. Their music was filled with incredible passion, sorrow and hope, and I immediately knew that I needed to represent and reinforce this variety of emotions to viewers. I chose to do this by combining a peaceful woman with fierce waves in a double exposure. Additionally, I meshed contrasting typefaces to reinforce the conflicting tone of The Oh Hellos’ music.

The success of the CD design was confirmed through winning first place in CD packaging at BSC’s 2016 Spring Show Awards, along with recently receiving a silver at the 2017 Local Addy’s.
