C’est l’heure de l’apéro

Record sleeve
Client: Christine Tassan et les imposteures
Montréal, 2012

This is the second time I’ve worked with the lovely musicians from Christine Tassan et les imposteures a ‘manouche’ (or gypsy) jazz band. For their new opus, C’est l’heure de l’apéro, the band members, Christine Tassan, Lise-Anne Ross, Martine Gaumond and Blanche Baillargeon wanted to convey a festive and sunny spring terrasse feel to the album’s visual identity. To create the artwork, we chose to work with the a collage technique so that I could let my inspiration run free and quickly create multiple versions. The result is an explosion of playful colors in a contrasting aerial and soft look and feel.

The album was launched on October 1st, 2012 at the Lion d’or, in Montréal.
