Mumford & Sons

Designing the ‘Wilder Minds’ Album Artwork

THE BRIEF

The brief was to develop Mumford & Son’s Wilder Mind album artwork whilst working closely with the art directors at Missisouri Creative. They had various rough sketches and designs of how they wanted the final product to look and it was my job to bring it to life.

IMAGE COMPOSITIONS

Part of the project was to compile a large montage of exclusive shots of the band for the vinyl and cd artworks.

TYPOGRAPHY

I was given hundreds of photographs of neon tubing that had been bent and arranged in different ways. In photoshop I manipulated these to build a custom type for ‘Wilder Mind’ that was used across the entire campaign.

RESULTS

The album debuted #1 in UK and the USA selling millions of copies around the world. It was incredible to see some of my design work used across the globe especially when you walk past the billboards in the centre of London city. This was one of the fastest paced projects I’ve worked on with an incredibly tight turn around. Thank you to the creative team at Missouri Creative for our continual collaboration and inviting me to work on this album.
