A little while ago I met a couple of lovely ladies from a band called Charlie Mayfair and they asked me to draw some things for their debut EP and a poster for the launch. It was really cool working with them. I’ve never had a client who actually let me indulge so deeply in my illustrative design style, and to find them a unique visual voice was a distinct pleasure.
You should go and listen to them here and if you’re in south east Queensland do catch one of their gigs too. I’m pretty chuffed that I got to design stuff for a band whose music I really like, and to me they have a real Brisbane sort of sound which I find hard to describe. Some time ago I was a big fan of another Brisbane band, george, and their music reminds me a lot of those days! If you like gentle folky pop with harmonies, you’ll probably like Charlie Mayfair a lot too.
If you’d like to see a few more photos of the poster and CD you can take a gander at my portfolio.
