Total Yuppies is my band. I write the songs, manage our schedule & press, and design the album art, flyers, and other collateral items.
This is the band's first release. I felt that it was important to come screaming out of the gate with something strong and purposeful, both in the music and in the album art. It's been incredibly enriching and fun to put forth all of my creative energy to make this come together.
This design is influenced by 80's hardcore gig fliers and album art primarily in its use of scanned stamp lettering and gritty paper texture. I got here using my little low-budget scanner (sometimes, in a pinch, my iPhone + Photoshop), and a lot of late nights figuring out where to put everything. It was very rewarding.
I look forward to pushing this band to new places - musically and visually.
