Raw Records Research is a collection of young and unknown European artists’ improvisations. The collection is a set of inspiring urban mix with futuristic mood. Album’s sound features a hidden side of big city absorbing subway and street noise, road repairing, chats of passersby and rumble of cars. The collection was released in May 2017.
Molto Bureau designed the name and visual image of vinyl record and cover, reflecting futuristic mood of the set. Our decision was to create solid R letter stressing the rawness of compositions. The collection was divided into 2 sides: light and dark, as well as the city that combines opposite feelings. It was additionally expressed in the color spectrum.
As usual in our process we started with pencil and paper for brainstorming with a team, after that we drew a lot of sketches.
Then we created a design in Adobe Illustrator.
For design process we used Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop and 3D Max for presentation.
We learned a lot a hidden side of big city. Throughout the album’s run time, the use of beats is varied: some tracks feature up-tempo, skittering beats, while other tracks place emphasis on isolated vocal samples overlaid on city ambience.
