About the project:
Housetop is a Brattleboro-based swing vocal quartet. In 2011 I designed the CD graphics for their first CD, Two Foot Jumpin. I also created a web site and a poster design for the band incorporating many of the images from the CD package. The band commissioned an original digital collage by Matt Maranian. Matt’s design of a rooftop, chimney, moon, stars, and text became the basis for the CD cover, web site, and poster designs. I modified Matt’s art to fit the CD layout, adjusting colors, proportions, and textures. I also extrapolated elements from his work to create the “village skyline” that can be seen on the inside of the CD package.
The Housetop web site builds on the same graphic concepts, and features a gig calendar, music samples, online store, and band photos. It is built in WordPress so the band can maintain and update it on their own.
