cassette cover artwork
The Claptraps (self-titled)
printed on 158gsm semi-gloss art paper
The Claptraps are an indie rock, shoegaze style band based in Beijing. Their debut EP was recorded, mixed and released in house at nugget records.
I worked alongside the band to create a visual representation of their sonic work. We hoped to convey in the artwork the vibrant psychedelic sensibilities that are present in their sound. The single ghost-like character huddled in the middle of the cover art alludes to themes of loneliness and a stark separation of one's inner state from the hectic outside world, both referenced in the Claptraps' musical work.
