Songs For Slim
7" Record Series
After working with the Songs For Slim team on a logo and website, we were asked to art direct the series of 7" records they would auction off monthly. Featuring paintings by Chris Mars, we approached the project looking to give the series a unified look reminiscent of the Blue Note jazz records of the 1950s and 60s. Room for the artists to autograph the covers was built in to the design. Each record is hand numbered with a foil stamp and pressed on a hand-mixed vinyl color pulled from a color in the cover painting. Artists involved in the series include The Replacements, Craig Finn (Hold Steady), Steve Earle, Lucinda Williams, Tommy Keene, Jakob Dylan (Wallflowers), Joe Henry, The Minus 5, Curtiss A, Peter Buck (R.E.M.), John Doe (X), Frank Black (Pixies), Scott Lucas (Local H), Vanessa Carlton, Deer Tick, You Am I, and many more.
