Harmless LP

Cover Design

Project Brief:

Design a cover for Harmless’ ‘I’m Sure’ vinyl release.


For the re-release of this album 10 years later, Harmless wanted it to feel like a sun-kissed, carefree summer. 

The original design featured an illustrative sketch of him as a child, with a characteristic turquoise background. I decided to use the original photograph in the redesign, as an ode to the artist’s beginnings. All of the text is Harmless’ handwriting, digitally scanned. The photographs were oringinally 4x6” on film, but we felt that polaroids would better capture the summer feeling that the artist was going for, so I edited the photos into polaroids and placed them alongside the lyrics.
