1. Case study

You promise was going to be his last Jass album he was going to produce. I listened to this album over and over. Great album! the art of being heartbroken.

2. Result

We had a photoshoot for the front and back cover at the Highline (j'adore). I also incorporated brushes and other imagery to give it a blue feeling look.

3. Experience

This was interesting when I first saw him walking towards me with his button down Cuban shirt for the photoshoot. I almost had a heart attack. No wardrobe as back-up. I had to continue because of the deadline. It took me a while to figure out a solution to make the design match his music.
